If you have a disability, health problem or learning difficulty, you’ll be offered a comprehensive range of support services when you study with us.

Wheelchair access

Campus is generally accessible for people with mobility difficulties; look for the signs for the North South Access Route around campus or ask a student ambassador in a red t-shirt.

Where possible, activities are in locations with wheelchair access, however due to the volume of activities and talks some locations may have restrictions.

If you’re interested in a talk or activity that is not listed as accessible in the open day guide, please contact us at pgopenday@leeds.ac.uk so we can make alternative arrangements. You can also pick up course information from subject drop-in sessions, most of which are in accessible venues.

Accessible information and on the day support

We can usually provide open day presentations in alternative formats such as braille or large print, if requested in advance. For support on the day we can also provide personal assistants, note-takers, and/or sign language interpreters if you contact us at least two weeks before the event. Please note we cannot guarantee this support if requests are made after the deadline.

If you need information in alternative formats or support at the event, please contact us at pgopenday@leeds.ac.uk.

Parking for blue badge holders

We have limited spaces reserved for disabled visitors. If you are a blue badge holder and require parking you must:

  • include this on your booking form
  • make sure you submit your booking at least 5 days before the event, otherwise we cannot guarantee your request for a blue badge.

For any enquiries about blue badge parking, please email pgopenday@leeds.ac.uk.
