Assistive technology rooms

Software and technology to support your studies

The assistive technology room is currently closed and remote support is available.

To prioritise wellness within the university community, all University Library sites on all campuses are closed until further notice. This includes the assistive technology room in Fisher Library.

Disability Support Services are available online. This includes remote support for assistive technology users and supplying laptops where needed for students who would ordinarily use the lab for exams. Please contact disability.services@sydney.edu.au for further information.
