The Disability Unit (DU) at Wits is a support unit within the Registrar’s Division committed to ensuring that students have equal access to educational opportunities at Wits so they can participate, freely and actively, in all facets of university life. DU pledges to assist students with disabilities to receive reasonable accommodations in academic and non-academic programmes and to create awareness of the issues and abilities of people with disabilities amongst the Wits community.
We are committed to working toward the goal of creating an equal, accessible and welcoming environment for all students with disabilities. We endeavour to make the learning environment a rewarding and enriching one through the exceptional design of innovative learning and working environments.
A note about our usage of the words "disabled" and "disability":
1. Those students who have documented physical, medical, learning and/or psychological conditions;
2. And in cases where professionals have verified that the student needs individualised services to overcome severe disadvantages.
