Welcome to Durham University Assessment Centre (DUAC). We offer a needs assessment service for disabled students, both at Durham University and across the region, to support in accessing the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).
We offer face to face and remote assessments. You can tell us your preference when booking your assessment. You can find out more about Disabled Students’ Allowance in our ‘Introduction to DSA’ Sway.
Our service opening hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Assessment appointments are available between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please contact us to find out about current appointment availability.
The Assessment Centre doesn’t open on Public Holidays and has an extended period of closure over Christmas and New Year. Our Christmas closure period 2022 will be from Thursday 8 December until Tuesday 3 January 2023.
You’re welcome to call in to reception at the Disability Support Office to speak to staff in person.
Many of our buildings are modern and designed for accessibility but a small number of the colleges and departments in Durham City are in very old, listed buildings where getting around isn't always straightforward.
