Making College Events Accessible


Attached is a useful guide outlining areas that need to be considered when organizing Accessible events.

Procedure for accessing lectures (including tutorials or labs) during a lift failure

  • Estates and Facilities notify the Disability Service of lift failures
  • The Disability Service informs wheelchair users via email
  • The onus is on students to check their timetables and if impacted to contact their school/department
  • Where possible, schools/departments should move the lecture to an accessible venue
  • If this is not possible, they should consider postponing the lecture or offering the student an alternative 

Please note: During a lift failure, staff, students and visitors who use wheelchairs or scooters are advised not to access or attempt to access upper floors unless they can do so safely and fully independently.
