This study examined the assistive technology needs of university students with disabilities and the availability of these technologies. It also explored the attitudes of the students with disabilities toward computers and the extent to which these are used by students with disabilities. Data was collected through a questionnaire, from 22 university students enrolled in one private and four public universities located in Ankara, Turkiye. The results of the study indicated that students with disabilities utilized assistive technology for different purposes, such as writing and conducting research, when the resources and support were available. Additionally, relationships between student knowledge, skills, attitudes, social norms, and beliefs were explored. (Contains 6 tables.)
