There are car parking spaces available on a pay-and-display basis.

Parking for disabled drivers is free of charge for those displaying a current disabled badge, and there are reserved spaces near the main entrance.

Emergency evacuations

If you have mobility problems, let us know when you arrive, so we're aware that you're in the building in case of an emergency evacuation.

Audible fire alarms are used in all University buildings. If you're unable to hear the fire alarm, please inform security staff when you first enter the building.

Need more help?

If you haven't yet done so, make sure you register with the University's Disability Learning Support team, who will assess your needs and make sure appropriate arrangements are in place for the duration of your studies.
