Housing and Transport: Access Issues for Disabled International Students in British Universities
Soorenian, Armineh
Disability & Society, v28 n8 p1118-1131 2013
This article explores two disabled people's "Seven Needs" to independent living, those of "housing" and "transport" issues, in relation to disabled international students in British universities. Firstly, students' living arrangements, including issues related to the suitability of university accommodation to their disability-related needs, have been identified. Secondly, the choice and accessibility of transport used is examined. A range of barriers that this group of students encounter based on their double or multiple identities as "disabled," "international" and sometimes "mature" or "postgraduate" students has thus been identified and discussed. The article highlights the barriers that are reinforced and exacerbated by the interplay of students' different identities, proposing ways of removing these difficulties.
