Week 7, Semester 2, 2022

Had a fantastic turnout to a walk through of the proposed disability space a few weeks back, thank you everyone who came along to share their ideas and feedback. I had a meeting last week with the infrastructure team to see the updated plans and it’s looking amazing. We’re also looking forward to the Disabilities edition of Honi coming up in Week 10. We’ve got some great submissions and the editorial team is looking fabulous!


Week 6, Semester 1, 2022

It was so exciting to welcome so many new members during welcome week. I’ve unfortunately been unwell but am looking forward to a caseworker talk and panel discussion on studying with a disability, a film night and and a talk about accessing and navigating the NDIS later in the semester.

Week 6, Semester 1, 2021

To new and old disabled students, we’re Sarah and Margot. We’re your office bearers for this year. We run the Disability Collective, which is an autonomous group on campus for disabled students to meet, organise, support one another, and push for a better, more accessible campus. We also help liaise with the Caregivers Network, a group for students with informal caregiving responsibilities. If you’d like to get involved, email us at disabilities.officers@src.usyd.edu.au.

We’re currently looking forward to the event we’re co-hosting with SignSoc, USyd’s Auslan society. You can join, meet other Auslan users, or learn the language in a fun, safe environment. At the event, three short films in Auslan and BSL will be shown. It’ll take place on April 21, at 5pm, in person and via Zoom. It’ll be a gold coin donation for DisCo members, and SignSoc members can come for free. For more info, check the Disability Collective Facebook page, or shoot us an email.

Have a good semester, and take care.
