I would suggest reaching out to the university's welfare team, and if they have one an accommodation team. They should be able to suggest appropriate accommodation that is best suited for you!

There is a bit more information about adapted rooms here:

https://www.winchester.ac.uk/accommo...-disabilities/

Essentially, every hall on campus has a room that is suitable for those with impaired hearing, so after checking with [email protected] about eligibility you would have to choice of any of our halls. Queens Road and Burma are our two biggest halls that are in the centre of the main campus, so they may be the best place to start looking at first. They are the closest to all facilities and services we offer.

Hey, when you apply for accommodation if you tell them you have a hearing impairment they can ensure you get a room that has appropriate adaptions (my campus has stuff like a door bell for the room connected to a light that flashes so you know if people are at your door, a vibrating alarm clock and a fire alarm that flashes so you have a visual warning if you can't hear the noise). Regarding your mental health conditions most unis can offer ensuite rooms if this will help ease anxiety and a lot of unis offer quiet and alcohol free flats if that will help you. But get in touch with the accommodation team and they can let you know what is available.

As for support in lessons make sure you apply for disabled students allowance and talk to your universities disability team. There is support available but you need to be quite proactive in seeking it
