The level of physical access to the 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.
The main teaching, lecture and social spaces have been checked for physical accessibility. 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 is limited parking at King's Manor for disabled badge holders - check first with the receptionists for availability.
There are four disabled parking bays available in the Campus Central car park: Campus Central car park VIP and disabled bay locations (PDF , 298kb)
Parking is available close to some Campus East buildings for visitors or staff with a blue badge or University disabled badge.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org (giving as much notice as possible) to let us know if you are expecting a visitor who will need cluster parking so it can be allocated and reserved for their entire visit. On arrival, the visitor can either press the intercom and announce their arrival to have the barrier lifted, or take a paper ticket which will allow access. To leave the cluster they will need a barrier ticket, available from the departmental administrator who made the booking.
Unannounced visitors will need to take a paper ticket to access the site and get it validated by the Hub reception before they leave. If the stay is longer than 45 minutes they will need to press the intercom to ask for the barrier to be opened when they leave.
All buses on the 66 route from the train station to the University are wheelchair-accessible. A return ticket costs £2 and, outside rush hour periods, the journey takes around 20 minutes. Transport on the 66 and ub.1 between Campus West and East is free.
A journey by taxi from the railway station to the University takes from 15 to 20 minutes and costs about £8.
