Disabled access

The University of Nottingham is committed to providing disabled students with access to its residential and teaching buildings and other facilities. We do this by:

  • guaranteeing an accessible room in university-arranged accommodation for the duration of  your studies  
  • investing in the development of our residential and non-residential buildings to improve accessibility and entrances
  • providing induction loops in a number of lecture theatres
  • maintaining an ongoing programme of campus improvements and modernisation
  • providing a wheelchair accessible Minibus Service on the university’s three main campuses, which can be booked according to your timetable

Building Access Plans

The Estates Office has developed Building Access Plans which clearly identify common parts of buildings and important information such as:

  • toilets, corridors, lifts and staircases
  • catering areas, seminar rooms and lecture theatres
  • refuges and evacuation chairs in case of emergency 

AccessAble app

The university has signed up to the AccessAble App a revolutionary tool that will greatly benefit all of our students, staff and visitors to campus.

The app is designed to provide practical information about facilities available and the access routes into a building before people set off on their journey, as well as signposting to prayer rooms, parenting rooms, gender-neutral toilets and quiet spaces.
