What is the Network?

What is the network?

This network is a collective which aims to represent the views of students’ at UCL who self-define as disabled, including but not limited to students with physical disabilities, long term illnesses, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues. 

The Network is chaired by an elected part time volunteer known as the Disabled Students’ Officer. Our Disabled Student Officer this year is Vladamir Kalinovskiy.

We hold meetings, events and run campaigns, like the one in the video below.

The Network is not a service provision for disabled students, that is provided by UCL Student Disability Services.

They are supported by union staff and full time officers that help to organise events and campaigns. The Network is tasked with making sure that UCL and the Students’ Union are working hard to ensure that all students have access to its activities and services.
