Accessible travel and parking

Advice on travel and parking for those with accessibility requirements.

The University of York works with AccessAble to develop guides to help make travel to and across campus more accessible.

Getting around campus

Buildings throughout the campus are linked by covered walkways. Ramps and external lifts provide alternatives to steps at ground level in most parts of the University.

There is a Duty Manager at public events in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall and Central Hall and all public access buildings have lifts.


Accessible parking bays are available across campus, reserved for blue badge holders or staff and students with a valid University accessible parking permit.

While accessible parking is widely available across Campus East and West, parking at King's Manor is limited, so we advise you to check first with the reception for availability by phoning +44 (0)1904 323995.

Accessible parking permits

Accessible parking permits for staff and students are free of charge and you can apply for them via the online parking permit system.

To qualify for an accessible permit, you will need to demonstrate that you have a long-term or temporary accessibility need; acceptable evidence includes a Blue Badge or a letter from your doctor.

Log in to the parking permit system


Bicycle parking is available close to all building entrances. You can find a map of all bicycle parking on the cycling and walking page.
