When applying for additional requirements on the accommodation portal you will be asked to describe any medical conditions or disabilities and provide us with medical evidence to support this. Please email any relevant medical evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your evidence is more than 1 year old, we may ask you to provide a new letter from your GP confirming that the contents of the old letter are still valid and include any changes in your condition.
If it is not clear from your medical evidence or application what provisions are necessary, we may ask for further evidence for clarification on whether your condition or disability requires a specific type of room. We may ask you to clarify how the condition affects you in day to day life and whether your condition or disability necessitates a specific type of room (ensuite, accessible etc) and whether any adaptations or specialist support is required.
Once you have completed the above steps, your additional accommodation requirement will be reviewed by the additional accommodation requirements panel, which includes members of the disability support team. You will be emailed the outcome of your application once it has been reviewed.
It is helpful if the evidence includes:
Your diagnosis (or diagnoses)
How the condition affects you in day to day life
How long you have had the condition and whether it is likely to change over time
Clarification of whether your condition or disability necessitates a specific type of room (ensuite, accessible etc) and whether any adaptations or specialist support is required
If you can only provide evidence of the medical condition or disability without the above points, we may ask you for further information to support your application.
