Sussex Regional Access Centre


Welcome to the Sussex Regional ACCESS Centre home page.

We offer needs assessments and training for students receiving the Disabled Students' Allowance.

About Us

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.

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, the Alumni fund and a loan from the University of Sussex.
