About Exeter Access Centre

The Exeter Access Centre provides high-quality Study Needs Assessment Reports for all students who meet the criteria for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs).

We are based on the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus, but our service is available to students applying to study with any Higher Education Provider (HEP) in the UK.

We are a fully accredited Access Centre working within current government guidelines to ensure standards of service to students are maintained.

We are also part of a National Network of Assessment Centres (NNAC Ltd)

Assessment Locations

The Exeter Access Centre provides Study Needs Assessments at our main centre in the Forum on the Streatham Campus. If you are returning for a Review, these shorter assessments may be conducted by remote assessment (telephone, teams or Zoom). We do not have any outreach venues.

To reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 on campus, the Exeter Access Centre is still providing most DSA assessments remotely by Teams, Zoom or phone (main student choices). Students can also request face-to-face assessments on the Streatham or St. Luke's campuses. Availability is limited at the current time.

If you have any specific requirements for your assessment, such as accessible parking or a BSL sign language interpreter, please let us know so we can make the necessary arrangements.

You can visit the AccessAble website for information on the accessibility of buildings around the Exeter campuses. 

Our next appointment is usually available in 1 working day.

If you have complex disability needs there may be a longer wait to ensure you are matched to the most appropriate assessor. This is in order to provide the best possible customer service.

Please email or call us on 01392 723880 in the meantime if you would like to know our current availability.
