Mobility Impairments

Accessibility

The University campus is generally accessible to wheelchair users and people with mobility impairments. There is a steep gradient on the pathway and road between the Main Campus and Gibbet Hill Campus where Biological Sciences and Warwick Medical School are located, but the rest of the campus is fairly flat.

Most teaching blocks have lift access to all floors and lifts are located in some of the halls of residence. There is an ongoing development program to improve lift access within residences.

The Estates accessiblity team is working with staff and students to monitor and continue to develop the campus accessibility. You can find more information and regular updates at this link .

Accessible accommodation is available at Arthur Vick, Jack Martin, Claycroft, Bluebell, Lakeside and Heronbank. Additional information about these blocks and on campus accommodation can be found at the Warwick Accommodation website.

Wherever possible, timetabling will take account of access requirements and mobility impairments in the allocation of teaching rooms.

Students with temporary mobility difficulties (as a result for example of a broken leg) should discuss their support requirements with their Department. Disability Services can offer some advice about external organisations providing support.

Parking

Accessible parking is available on campus for blue badge holders and some limited parking is available to other students without a blue badge who require temporary on campus accessible parking. Please note that parking on canpus is limited but you can find additonal information about how to apply for a parking certificate on disablity grounds on the Security Services WebPages.

Personal Care

Students are responsible for making their own arrangements for personal care support (i.e. assistance with hoisting, toiletting, showering, cooking, shopping etc.). The University provides academic enabling support such as note-taking, library assistance and specialist study skills but does not offer personal care support or assistance. Students are advised to contact their local Social Services to discuss a suitable care package. Accommodation for personal carers/assistants can be provided by arangement in the same block the student will be allocated to. Disability Services will facilitate any personal care arrangements students make as much as possible, by assisting with accommodation, induction and Health & Safety procedures.
