We have a wide range of support services available on Open Day.
Campus is generally accessible for people with mobility difficulties. When you arrive, look for the signs for the ‘North South Access Route’. This is an accessible route around campus.
The route begins at the main entrance of the University – near the Parkinson steps – and ends at the Worsley building. It's marked by signs and involves the use of lifts at some points.
You can also ask a student ambassador in a red t-shirt for help navigating campus.
You can use our interactive campus map to view locations of:
- routes across campus (use the walks/routes tab)
- disabled access to buildings (use the facilities tab)
- disabled toilets (use the facilities tab).
