In line with our commitment to diversity, Comillas Pontifical University runs a disability support program with the aim of helping these students to fully integrate without experiencing any more difficulties than any other student.
Therefore, we take care of the special educational needs of our students throughout their degree by offering them continuous tailored support.
In terms of the teaching team, we offer information and advice on the repercussions of disabilities for students, both on a personal and academic level. Additionally, coordination and support meetings are held to adapt the curriculum accordingly in order to guarantee equal opportunities.
Lastly and not forgetting the University Community, we work to achieve an inclusive environment that enables students with disabilities to cope with and actively participate in university life.

Resources and technical aids
This is a pass to be able to make photocopies for up to the sum of 70 euros every year which is intended to cover the additional costs involved for students with disabilities regarding keeping their study material up to date.
CARBONLESS COPY NOTEBOOKS
For students who find note-taking difficult. Along with the help of a classmate who takes notes, these notebooks mean you can keep the class material up to date: notes, exercises, practical exercises, etc.
EXTRA TRANSPORT AID
For students with severe mobility problems. This aid is annual and shall be deducted from the corresponding monthly payments.
ADAPTED STUDY AREAS
In classrooms, laboratories and IT rooms so that the student can use his/her usual materials and resources. In normal classrooms, the adapted study areas are signposted and their conditions of use shall be on display for all to see.
PERSONAL AND STUDY SUPPORT FROM FELLOW STUDENTS
Aimed at students who require support regarding personal autonomy, studies and their stay on the campus.
SOCIAL HEALTH CARE SUPPORT
This is a resource which aims to support the personal autonomy and independence of students with disabilities and basically consists of assistance with everyday activities: toilet, meals, etc.
EXTERNAL TECHNICAL ASSESSMENTS
If and when necessary, support from external specialist institutions shall be sought in order to locate material, resources and technical adaptations that adapt to students' needs. For this reason, we collaborate with the Fundación Universia who, through their Banco de Productos de Apoyo (Bank of Support Products), loan out "support products for communication and information" free of charge.
For AUDIOVISUAL accessibility (Frequency Modulation equipment, magnetic loops, etc.) For accessibility regarding INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS (Mouse emulator using a joystick, grid keyboard, etc.)
