Disability support

The Disability Service is part of Student and Academic Services. They provide information, advice and guidance whether you are an applicant, current or international disabled student.

Disability can mean different things to different people. By the term ‘disabled students’ we mean any student with:

  • specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia
  • mental health difficulties
  • autism
  • a long term health condition
  • a physical or sensory impairment

The Disability Service's contact details are:

Interfaith Chaplaincy

Tolerance and respect for religions and beliefs are important at the University of Bradford. The city has places of worship for most faiths and religions and many of these are close to our campus. 

The Interfaith Chaplaincy team represent various faith groups and provide spiritual support and pastoral care for staff and students of all faiths and none.

Counselling and wellbeing

Our Counselling Service provides a free and confidential service to all students and staff of the University of Bradford and Bradford College. In addition to counselling, we offer a range of support including self-help materials and wellbeing workshops.

We are completely independent of your academic studies or workplace and do not share information with staff in these areas.

Initial appointments and drop-in sessions are available in Student Central, 9:00-17:00, Monday to Friday. Reception is open 9:00-16:30.
