This page contains contact information for individuals and organisations in and outside of libraries at Cambridge, who are involved in working with and supporting people with disabilities.

Cambridge University Libraries Accessibility Services

The Libraries Accessibility Service (Raven protected page) is a new service established in November 2020. It is administered by a team of two staff: the Accessibility Services Manager and the Accessibility Services Coordinator.

The service will work across the Cambridge library network to ensure that library users have equal access to services and resources regardless of their accessibility needs.

Amongst other activities, the new team will be taking over responsibility for sourcing accessible alternate formats of resources held in the libraries for students and researchers with disabilities.

If you would like to get in touch with us to request an accessible format, or to discuss anything related to libraries and accessibility, please email You can also point library users to this email address if they have any questions or requests.

Cambridge Students' Union Disabled Students' Officer

The Cambridge Students' Union (Cambridge SU) Disabled Students' Officer (DSO) is one of the six sabbatical officers in the Students' Union, and the head of the Cambridge SU Disabled Students' Campaign. They are elected by disabled students to serve a year's term in the Students' Union. Their job is focused around campaigning for structural change within the University, and advocating for disabled students as a whole within it, including on University committees.


Part of Cambridge SU's job is coordinating communication between college and faculty student representatives, so if students and staff want to get in touch to use those networks - or to reach out to the disabled students community more widely - the Cambridge SU DSO is a good person to contact.
