NUS strives to provide an inclusive and nurturing campus environment for students with disabilities and special needs to achieve their fullest potential. The Student Accessibility Unit (SAU), previously known as Disability Support Office, serves as a key touchpoint dedicated to supporting the range of access needs that students may have.
The unit works closely with NUS offices and external partners to facilitate and provide individualised support services and resources to meet students’ diverse needs.
Whether you are a prospective, freshman or senior year student, you are encouraged to contact the SAU if you would like to seek support or explore how your access needs may be met.
We promote and adopt the following guiding principles towards building an inclusive and accessible campus.
Creating awareness for disability inclusion and accessibility to nurture a community that cares
Adopting an attitude of openness towards understanding the spectrum of accessibility needs that students may seek support with
Enabling students with disabilities to lead an independent and fulfilling campus life and beyond
We assist in navigating disability-related barriers during your educational journey at NUS, for any permanent or temporary conditions. Let us know your support needs through these three stages:
- Contact SAU to explore and discuss your options
- Accommodations and arrangements will be made with relevant parties
- Check in to review your needs, should any adjustments be needed
