Student with a disability

Three out of ten students are challenged in some way, for example, because of dyslexia, ADHD, or a chronic illness.

Read all about the help that is available for students with a disability below. Although we have not described all disabilities, we are here to discuss whatever is necessary for you to be able to study well. So, if your disability is not listed, please check how we can facilitate you.


All Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences locations are accessible. A ramp or lift is available to enter the RUAS buildings. Most locations have special parking spaces. At every location you can find adapted toilets. Are you disabled? Please always check in with reception so that they can help in case of an emergency, such as an evacuation. If you need specific facilities, discuss them first with a student counsellor. Together with your study programme, you can check what is possible at your location.


Do you want to get in touch with other students with functional limitations? Visit "Student Welfare advisors" at Museumpark (MP.H.00.050). Paula van Galen is there to help you. You can also call her at +31 (0)10 - 794 5299.
