Students with Disabilities

It goes without saying that Pembroke welcomes applications from students with disabilities. If you apply we will assess you on your academic potential to do well in the course you wish to study, and then discuss with you the sort of support that you may require.

It is sensible to get in touch with the undergraduate admissions tutor at an early stage to discuss the help you may need and to look at the facilities that we can offer. Inevitably with very old buildings, access is not always straightforward. However, Pembroke has made efforts to make the College as accessible as possible and many studnets with disabilities have studied successfully here.  For detailed information on access in Pembroke, see

The Cambridge Disability Resource Centre can provide excellent support and advice.  The Cambridge University Disability Resource Centre has produced a series of films as a resource for students with disabilities who are considering an application to Cambridge. They can be found at:  We would encourage you to contact the Disability Resource Centre before you send in your formal application. Specialist advice on dyslexia is also available from the Disability Resource Centre.
