Student Support Unit

The Student Support Unit is a team of specialist Disability Advisors and administrators. We provide confidential information and advice to current and future students on disability-related study support and accessing disability-related funding.

Drop-in sessions

For information on accessing support at the University of Sussex, attend one of our drop-in sessions.

  • Just let reception know that you would like to see someone in the SSU drop-in and they will put your name on the list for the sessions taking place at that time.
  • You may have to wait a short while if the advisors are with students but the friendly reception team will let you know if this is the case.
  • If you are unable to wait you can come to the next drop-in session during that day.
  • Drop-in sessions are held with advisors who can answer questions you may have, provide the most appropriate advice and guidance and identify the best next steps to take.
  • Depending on your support needs, you may be allocated an Advisor to work with on a longer term basis.

You can also tell us about your disability or learning difference by phone or email.

Reasonable adjustments

If you’re a student, see information about reasonable adjustments on the Student Hub.

We also provide resources and guidance for university staff on reasonable adjustments and supporting students with disabilities.


Our drop-in sessions operate daily from 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm.
