The Student Support Centre (SSC), is part of the Office for Work Placement and Student Support, attached to the Office of the Vice President for Student and consists of a multidisciplinary team of professionals in the fields of social work, psychology, ICT accessibility, sociology and management. Our mission is to give customised attention to the students of the University of Alicante in order to enable their full participation, following the principles of equal opportunities and universal accessibility
All University of Alicante students with any type of physical, sensorial, psychological and/or mental disabilities as stated in article 49 of the Spanish Constitution and on the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities with the aim of ensuring their full inclusion and participation in the university community.
Adjustments take place when the university context needs to be modified to make it accessible to people with personal limitations. Human beings have always shaped their environment to make it accessible. We can find the first examples of adaptations in Ancient Greece in the figure of "readers"; people who read the law to those who could not.
Most of the adaptations carried out in the SSC are sponsored by Universia Foundation Bank Support Products. Visit their website to see the products that may be useful for the University of Alicante's student life.
