Studying with a disability

Fulda Faculty of Theology is committed to providing equality of opportunity and improving access for all students with disabilities. Students who use a wheelchair can gain access to the faculty through a wheelchair-friendly second entrance. A recently installed elevator has made most of the premises accessible without the use of stairs. The Student Advisory Service would be happy to answer any further questions on this issue:  studienberatung@thf-fulda.de.
