The paper analyzes the demographic dynamics and structure of a marginal group, represented by students with disabilities, in the University ”Dunarea de Jos” of Galati. It was given by the context of the development of a European project which facilitated access to university education for people with disabilities. The processed data cover a period of four years and have revealed several types of relations between the majority and the demographic structure of marginal group. The study took into account both the strictly demographic indicators - sex and age - and the options for study programs chosen by students. The research results show that students with disabilities represent a distinct category in terms of structural features. However, a number of general features of the macro-university system configuration is reflected in the marginal group, according to the principles of partwhole.
