Abstract.The enrollment of d/Deaf students in the universities of Turin, Italy, has increased for the past 15 years. Each student is entitled to an individual plan and special educational services, such as sign language interpretation and specialized tutorships. However, results of this study highlight several issues, including high percentages of d/Deaf students dropping out from university and the lack of access to international mobility programs.
