Types of appointment

On-campus appointments

You can book an appointment online, via phone or in person at Gold Coast, Logan and Nathan campuses. At certain times of the year, demand for our service is high. We will make every effort to see you as soon as possible, and you will always be offered the first available appointment at your preferred campus.

Cancellations

Due to the high demand on our service, we expect you to contact us as soon as possible to cancel or reschedule your appointment if you are unable to attend. That way we can offer it to another student who needs our support.

Phone appointment:

  • Book an appointment online and select 'Student Disability and Accessibility Service eContact Consultation'.

Third Party Authorisation

Student Disability and Accessibility will not discuss or release confidential information about you without your written permission to do so, with the following exceptions:

  • when required by law, or
  • where there is significant risk to you or another person, or
  • where disclosure is inherent in the nature of the contact (e.g. you are seeking assistance gaining employment, you are seeking assistance with arranging disabilities support).

We encourage students with disabilities to be self-managed in all students matters but we understand that in certain circumstances you may require a partner, parent/guardian, or care to contact on your behalf. You can discuss the process for this at your initial interview.

Further information regarding the University’s Privacy Plan is available on the University’s website.
