How is the Center structured?
The Center is structured in Sections (Welcoming Department, Counseling, Pedagogy and Technology) and organizes its activities in services and projects, in conformity with its aims and duties.
What are the services offered by the Center?
The Center favors the inclusion of students who live their University life in a state of unease, through the elimination of didactic, psychological, pedagogic and technologic barriers that don't allow equal opportunities of studies and treatment. The offered services are thus personalized and are the result of a shared project between students and operators.

Is there an internal assistance service for disabled students?
Yes. The Center aids persons with motor or sensorial disabilities, permanent or temporary, with the help of a Civil Service volunteer who assists in utilizing all the University's spaces and equipment safely, and to overcome architectonic barriers during transport within the University's sites.
I am a disabled student with legally recognized invalidity; can I apply for financial aid?
All students with a certificate of invalidity, independently of income and merit, have the right to partial or total exempt from University tuition tax. In particular:
- disabled students with a percentage of invalidity between 35% and 65% are exempted from the payment of contributions, apart from the enrollment tax and regional tax for the right to study (partial exempt);
- disabled students with a percentage of invalidity over 65% are exempted from the payment of taxes and contributions, apart from the payment of the regional tax for the right to study (total exempt);
In both cases, the documentation must be accompanied by the relative instance on legal paper due for enrollment.

What is the degree of accessibility of the University?
The Ripartizione Edilizia e Patrimonio, responsible for the access to the University, is engaged in both a progressive elimination of architectonic barriers and in the planning stages of all new initiatives in order to facilitate access for all.
The Center is also involved in the verification of accessibility of all spaces of the University and in the identification of the best routes to access them, in a simple and effective manner. To consult the interactive map of all the University's sites, it is possible to visit the website "barriere.unina" and download (in PDF format) all the recommended routes for persons with disabilities.
Can I report an architectonic barrier?
Yes, you can report any difficulties and areas in need of attention in relation to the University's accessibility by contacting us through the dedicated form "Suggestions and Reports". Your contribution will help the growth of our service.
How can I help a disabled classmate?
