The Coordinatorship for the Disabled Student Unit of the University identifies the obstacles in front of the students' ability to maintain their academic life in an equal and effective way and creates an environment that supports the academic, social and personal development of the students by removing these obstacles. For this, our Disabled Student Unit provides equality in access to academic programs for our students, priority on needs for housing, equality for being involved in university life, and awareness about disability within the university.
