Disabled Indonesian students experience profound barriers in accessing and succeeding in higher education. This chapter examines the adversities that they face and the impact that this can have on their lives. It then considers the work of a Pusat Studi dan Layanan Disabilitas (Disability Study and Service Center), and uses feedback from disabled students to consider how successful this centre has been in addressing these barriers. This highlights areas where progress remains problematic, as well as identifying several positive initiatives that have the potential to act as models for supporting the development of inclusive higher education across Indonesia.
