One of the services offered to students with disabilities is the Abigail Mlotchwa Dayhouse.
This dayhouse is a place where you can go to make yourself a coffee and warm up your lunch in a fully wheelchair accessible kitchenette. A place to put your books and other possessions in a locker so you don't have to carry them round all day, where you can do some work, watch a video, even lie down.
The Abigail Mlotchwa Dayhouse for disabled students was officially opened in the Steve Biko Students' Union Building on 24 May 2007.

The dayhouse is named in memory of Abigail Mlotchwa, a disabled undergraduate humanities student who died suddenly from a brain haemorrhage in 2007. Mlotchwa was a student activist who lobbied for the formation of the dayhouse on campus.
