Supporting students with disabilities, mental health problems or specific learning difficulties 

Enabling Services provides a wide variety of support for students who have disabilities, mental health conditions and/or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia. Our expert team can provide advice and support relating to your studies, both while you are preparing for University and throughout your time here.

We offer a range of appointment options: Face to face, telephone, and Skype (with exception of Counselling appointments). These can be arranged by either attending our Drop In, 1pm - 3pm, Monday to Friday (term time) and Monday, Wednesday and Friday (vacation period), emailing us on enable@soton.ac.uk or ringing us on +44(0)23 8059 7726. Skype appointments are helpful if you are not based at or able to visit the Highfield Campus.

Below is a short video on how to access support whilst you are at the University through the Enabling Services Drop-In.
