Our reset rooms are specifically designed to promote self-regulation. They create a private, safe, calm environment and are located in the library of each Deakin campus.
Our Disability Resource Centre (DRC) promotes inclusion and access for people who experience disability and those with primary carer responsibilities. Together with a Disability Liaison Officer (DLO), you will work with the DRC to identify and seek any adjustments, services and recommendations that will assist the University in meeting your study needs.
This could include providing study materials and assessments in accessible formats, assistive technology, access to academic support workers, helping to communicate your needs to academic staff and more.
The information provided on the disability registration form and all attached supporting documentation will be used by the DRC to process your registration, to determine and manage the provision of services to you. You’ll be asked to agree to a privacy collection statement during the request support process.
You are not obliged to share or disclose a disability or medical condition to the University. We accept that some students will choose to not disclose their disability, health or mental health condition for personal reasons. There are several considerations when deciding to disclose or not. If you do choose to tell the University about your disability and the impacts on your study, we may be able to provide you with some useful support services. We receive government funding to do this, and we can't provide services unless we know what you need.
