We recognise that the term 'disability' can describe a wide range of physical and sensory impairments including enduring health conditions, specific learning differences and mental health issues. We aim to ensure that all students feel equally valued and are able to participate in our university community and we therefore provide many activities that promote inclusivity.
The Disability Service
We also recognise that everyone has the right to access every opportunity available to them, regardless of any of physical or sensory impairments. The Disability Service is here to provide advice and guidance on a range of disability-related matters and help disabled students to be fully included within the academic and social community.
Visit the Disability Services website for more information on how you can access their services.

Undeb Bangor Council – Disabled Students Councillor
The Undeb Bangor Council is the body within the Undeb Bangor which exists to debate ideas in relation to its policies, campaigns and political activity, ideas relative to its opportunities or for the development of the student experience at Bangor. It is also a forum where Bangor students can hold their elected union officers and councillors to account.
The council is made up of student members occupying a number of specialist roles including a Disabled Students Undeb Bangor Councillor. If you are interested in becoming an Undeb Bangor Councillor, please email email@example.com for more information.
If you are facing barriers engaging in student life then Connect@Bangor may be able to help.
