The research, which is composed of explanatory sequential design out of the mixed approach designs and in which quantitative and qualitative approaches are used together, were made with the participation of all the students with disabilities studying in physical education and sports departments of 21 universities in Turkey during 2015-2016 academic year. 71 students including 27 with visual impairments, 9 with hearing impairments and 38 with physically impairments participated in the quantitative section of the research. 11 students including 4 with visually impairments, 3 with hearing impairments and 4 with physically impairments participated in the qualitative section. "Adaptation Scale of Students with Disabilities Studying in Physical Education and Sports Departments" and "Semi-structured Interview Form" were used as data collection tools. While the participants with visually impairments and physically impairments emphasized the issue of organizing the physical areas and problems in the practical lessons, the participants with hearing impairments were found to have problems in theoretical lessons. It was determined that the students with disabilities have common expectations, such as instructors sparing more time for them during the lessons.
