Students with disabilities: front office and services
Services provided by Centro di Studio e Ricerca per le Problematiche della Disabilità CESPD
The Study and Research Centre for Disability Issues has been set up to:
- receive students with disabilities, acknowledging their needs and planning the necessary actions to adopt
- provide services to enable full access to the resources offered during the academic path
On the basis of their specific needs, students with disabilities can ask for individual learning aids. Those in need of personalised assistance can ask for an individual collaborator, or those who have a specific disability can request subsidies, specific learning aids or the support of a sign language interpreter. Requests should be addressed to CESPD which, after assessing the case, will arrange for the necessary actions to be implemented.

School Coordinators for Disability Issues
Moreover, in each School one or more academic staff are in charge of students with disabilities' issues. The School coordinators for disability issues are a direct academic reference point for students with disabilities who need specific orientation and support in the school of their choice.
To facilitate access to resources some specific services have been activated, including home delivery loan service "The library ... comes to you!".
