The level of physical access to the Heslington campus is good. Buildings throughout the campus are linked by covered ways and ramps replace steps at ground level in most parts of the university, so that there is fairly free movement for wheelchairs. A level route is marked as a pink thick dotted line on the map of the campus.
The main teaching, lecture and social spaces have been checked for physical accessibility, and all lecture theatres and most seminar rooms have hearing loops. Most buildings have an accessible lavatory, and there are disabled refuges throughout the campus with an intercom.
Each zone of the campus has a Facilities Manager who can help, and there is a Duty Manager at public events in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall and Central Hall.
All public access buildings have lifts.
All car parks have bays reserved for disabled badge holders, for whom parking is free.
There are an additional number of specified disabled parking bays marked on the map.
There is limited parking at King's Manor for disabled badge holders - check first with the porters at reception for availability.
The number 4 service from the railway station has modern low floor buses with wheelchair spaces. It runs Monday to Saturday between 6.25am and 11.50pm approximately every 10 minutes and on Sunday approximately every 15 minutes.
Some buses on the 44/Unibus route are wheelchair-accessible, but not all.
A journey by taxi from the railway station to the University takes from 15 to 20 minutes and costs about £8.
