Up to now, the Indonesian government continues to improve support and empowerment to students with special needs, including students with disabilities. However, many of universities in Indonesia are not ready to accept disable students to study. We would like to know how disable students in Universitas Airlangga perceive the services provided. We gave questionnaires to 5 (five) disable students studying in two universities. We found that many of the policies of the university are not readily available for the disable students. Four of the students believe that the facilities in general need improvements. Some facilities for supporting the learning process are good according two of the students, but the rests, at least half of those facilities still need improvements. All of the students have good relationship with the peers, and many of them are helpful to the disable students. We conclude that the area that we need much improvement is giving more access to the disable students regarding the university policies, and improve the facilities of the university so that it will be a friendlier physical environment for the disable students.
