dc.description.abstract The research is a qualitative investigation into the challenges experienced by Students with Physical Disabilities (SWPD’s) at the University of Limpopo (Turfloop Campus). The study uses Thematic Content Analysis as both a framework and a mode of data analysis in the study. Interviews using a semi-structured questionnaire were used to investigate the phenomena. Themes found in the data of the present study indicated that disabled students generally find that there is inadequate physical infrastructure which compromises their physical access within the institution. The participants also had to deal with discrimination from peers and staff. Furthermore, participants reported that being provided with proper amenities such as laptops and wheelchairs would help them find the environment less challenging. Educating able-bodied staff and students was also seen as necessary in order to combat discrimination. The poor infrastructure at the university provides many challenges and barriers to the disabled being able to move freely which, at times, leads them to staying in their rooms thus increasing their isolation. en_US
