Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) Support Service - Piacenza

In compliance with the provisions of Law No. 17 dated 28 January 1999 and Law No. 170 dated 8 October 2010, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore has established a Support Service for Students with Disabilities and Students with Specific Learning Disorders, that is available to all students enrolled in the Università Cattolica degree programmes, specialization schools and specialising master programmes.

This Service aims to accompany and meet the needs of the students throughout their university experience to ensure their academic success and to provide the necessary technical and administrative support.


The Service offers concrete help to all students in need of support, regardless of any tax exemption status (with a certified minimum of 66% disability and/or documents relating to the recognition of handicap Art. 3, Paragraph 1 of Law No. 104 dated 5 February 1992). Thus, it is also possible to request the use of the Service with a diagnosis of a lesser degree of invalidity or with a temporary disability (due to surgery accident etc.) provided that updated documentation can be submitted by the student making the request.
