Welcome to the Sussex Regional ACCESS Centre home page.
We offer needs assessments and training for students receiving the Disabled Students' Allowance.
Easily reached from Brighton, we are a campus-based, University service for students from any area or institution.
The Sussex Regional ACCESS Centre (SRAC) is located in Lancaster House at the University of Sussex.
SRAC provides needs assessments and training on assistive technology to students in receipt of the DSA, including prospective students.
Follow-up support is included in our assessment fee, which is paid out of the DSA, and includes support for any additional needs which may develop and review of DSA support for the duration of the original course, including liaison with funding bodies, equipment suppliers, Disability Officers etc.
We keep in touch with students in order to monitor how effective the recommended support has been and we welcome contact from students with updated information.
SRAC operates within the quality assurance framework of DSA-QAG and maintains an extensive range of up to date assistive technology and equipment.
Formerly known as the Assistive Technology Centre, the unit was originally set up in 1997 with a bequest from the family of Sally Marriott and donation from the University of Sussex Alumni fund.

As an accredited DSA-QAG centre, we would like to invite you to participate in a questionnaire to indicate to DSA-QAG how you rate the services provided to you at three key stages in the DSA process.
By participating in an online questionnaire, you will have an opportunity to improve or change the current service being provided to yourself and other students undergoing the DSA process next year and in the future. The questionnaire is available at: http://www.dsa-qag.org.uk/student-survey.html
