Students with disabilities and SLD
Students for students
Peer Tutors are senior students who make their experience available to support other students. If you are looking for study advice from a different perspective than that of the teacher, if you want to make the most of the opportunities offered by the University and develop more effective study habits write to [email protected]
DiversaMENTE follows students with disabilities and specific learning disorders in all administrative matters, supports them in teaching activities and helps them to enter the world of work.

A reduction in tuition fees is also available for students belonging to families with difficult financial conditions, children of disabled people, and beneficiaries of disability pensions in accordance with the provisions of art. 30 of Law no. 118 of 30 March 1971.
The residence has 3 housing units structured to accommodate students with motor disabilities. The call for applications for the assignment of the accommodation expires at the end of August.
Students who need mobility aid are offered support in moving between university facilities by student colleagues and/or auxiliary staff in order to follow the courses, go to exams, carry out bureaucratic procedures and take part in the activities of the University
The achievement of equal opportunities in learning and study can be facilitated thanks to technological tools to be used in the classroom, and to the services offered online.
diversaMENTE facilitates the student's contacts with the teachers, both to ensure support during course attendance and exam preparation, and to identify appropriate assessment methods, providing, according to different needs, additional time, technological aids and any equivalent tests.
Through the University library, students can access digitized teaching materials (handouts, notes, videos) and, in compliance with copyright law, books in formats that make it possible to overcome any sensory and cognitive barriers. A special space on the University's teaching platform is reserved exclusively for students who apply for access. www.community.iulm.it
There are also workstations equipped with specific software for the visually impaired and dyslexics.
Internships and Placement
diversaMente, in collaboration with the Internship office, offers assistance in finding companies where it is possible to carry out the work experience required by the Degree Course; in evaluating offers; in preparing interviews and in defining the contract.
Law 68/99, "Rules for the right to work for people with disabilities", defines new procedures for the employment of people with disabilities, aiming to promote targeted placement and a new system based on different approaches, in order to achieve quality work placement.
IULM University is a member of the Coordinamento Atenei Lombardi per la Disabilità (CALD) which, among other initiatives, manages the CALD JOB website, a tool created to promote a network of relationships that improve the work placement of undergraduates and recent graduates belonging to protected categories.
The opening of the website does not change the mediating function of the university to which the candidate belongs, but integrates it into a wider network, thereby increasing its effectiveness.
It should be noted that placement is also possible for orphaned students, refugees, victims of terrorism and the like, in accordance with art. 18 of Law 68/99. Contact us.
DIVERSITALAVORO facilitates the employment of people belonging to traditionally discriminated categories, developing specific skills and innovative solutions for companies and the labour market, from research and selection to training, from orientation to the concretization of positive actions.
SuperReading is a course that promotes the ability to read and understand text in a strategic way.
The method, developed in the United States and subsequently tested in Great Britain, has proved particularly effective for people with dyslexia.
The IULM University has translated and adapted the materials to the Italian context, starting an experiment that has involved 260 subjects, of which 143 are dyslexics and 117 are normolectors.
Given the excellent results obtained, IULM University has included SuperReading in its teaching offer, as a course of your choice that allows you to acquire 3 CFU.
