A £3.5m equality access improvements programme will commence this year.
Access to areas in and around campus matters to all not least disabled students and staff. We remain committed to improving accessibility on campus and produce Access News which provides a roundup of our work in this area.
This summer a significant investment will take place to further improve equality access amongst areas on campus. The £3.5m access works programme, commencing this summer and expected for completion by 2019, includes a detailed maintenance and external environments work programme and will address issues such as improving way-finding signage, improvements to ramps and some new ramps to replace steps; the provision of new and more accessible pathways and parking bays. Work will also take place to improve access to the Parkinson Building.
