Disability Advisory and Support Service


Registering with DASS

What does registering with the Disability Advisory and Support Service mean (and not mean)?

If you would like to receive disability support on your course, you will need to register with the Disability Advisory and Support Service. Registering means filling in this registration form and providing evidence. These are needed to start off the process of accessing your support.

We won’t tell anybody about you contacting or registering with us, unless you give us permission to.

If you do want support, we may have to tell some people to be able to put it in place, but only with your consent.

If you register with the Disability Advisory and Support Service, this won’t be added to your degree certificate, and we won’t tell your future employers. By filling in the Disability Advisory and Support Service registration form you are not ‘registered disabled’. Your information is always confidential.

How do I register?

In order to register, you will need to complete a Disability Advisory and Support Service registration form and provide evidence of your disability.

Completing the form

When completing the form, it’s really important that you do the following.

  • You need to sign page one of the form with a pen, as we can’t accept a form with a typed signature. This is because we need to be sure the form was completed by you. However, you can then scan the form in to return it.
  • You need to tick just one of the four boxes on page one.

If you tick the fourth box on page one, you will also need to complete this form.

Getting the form back to us

You can return the form to us either by e-mailing it, posting it, or bringing the form to our office, along with some evidence of your disability.

Email dso@manchester.ac.uk

Post DSO, Second Floor, University Place, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL

Still not sure? Do you need any help with the form?

If you have a question, please contact us.

Alternatively, you can complete the form here in the Disability Advisory and Support Service with one of our team. To do this, you will need to book a Quick Query appointment.
