Abstract

The Centre for Handicapped Students was created ten years ago at University “L’Orientale” in Naples according to a previous national law, which obliges universities to offer to students a such service. During the years this Centre has started many projects to help these students, who are not so many, considering that all students of our university reach some 12.000 ones. I have to stress that many of these projects intended to look for money from the national government, regional and local institutions, considering that the Centre, like in most universities, is getting a very small amount of money due to general economical situation of the Country. There is also another aspect besides money shortage, which is a chronicle situation for universities, not only in Italy, the law concerning the creation of this new service in the universities was not considering the fact that small universities with a target on humanities (i.e. without medical or psychological faculties) did not have the personnel to help handicapped people and for this kind of service, even at the front desk, it is necessary to employ trained and specialised personnel. So the continue rush for looking money necessary to go on offering this service, which is a duty imposed to the university by law, but from the other side not sponsored at all adequately. I am going to illustrate a few of these projects, which gave to our students a better university service and a better social university life.
