About us

The Office for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities (OIPD) attends directly to the whole university community (students, teachers, administrative and service personnel), providing a space where doubts and needs are addressed and suggestions on how to deliver quality services are welcome.

Its primary functions are: to provide attention, information, and guidance in personal, professional and social spheres; to give information on grants and financial assistance; to assist in planning internship programmes and in offering career advice; and, finally, to carry out awareness-raising activities within the University to ensure that everyone who is a part of the UCM community receives equal treatment.

Programme of Orientation and Access

The OIPD maintains permanent contacts with the secondary studies centres of the Comunidad de Madrid in order to know the necessities of the future students.
