Accessibility

Please find accessibility information for your visit below. If you have any specific access or support requirements on the day (e.g. assistance on campus tours, directions to lifts or toilets, help with doors, a position near the front of a lecture theatre, etc) please ask any member of our Student Ambassador and Staff teams who will be happy to help. Alternatively, you can contact us on opendays at warwick dot ac dot uk to make arrangements in advance.

Accessible Parking

Blue Badge Holders and visitors with specific accessibility requirements can register for a campus parking space when booking for an Open Day visit. Please note that there is no step-free access on our Park and Ride service and there can be queues and crowds. If you need to add accessible parking after you have completed your booking, please email us at opendays at warwick dot ac dot uk.


Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome. There are several dog pens on campus, the most central being behind the Library building, outside the University House rear entrance and opposite the Bluebell 2 residence.


Hearing Impairments

If you wish to sit at the front of a venue to see and hear the speaker more clearly, please arrive at the session venue 15 minutes before the session is due to begin and ask the Student Ambassador on the door to seat you at the front. If you have any other specific access requirements, please ask the Student Ambassador before the session begins.

Induction Loops

Some of our rooms use a magnetic induction loop that can be used with compatible hearing aids, but many rooms now use an infra-red system that requires a specific headset. We can provide these on request - please email us at opendays at warwick dot ac dot uk to request a headset.

British Sign Language Interpreters

We can arrange for a BSL Interpreter to accompany you on the day if required. Interpreters are hired from outside the University, so please let us know as soon as possible so that we can find an interpreter with availability. Please email us at opendays at warwick dot ac dot uk to request this service.


Peak Times

Offer Holder events are designed for smaller groups than our full Open Days, but there can still be some queues and crowding on arrival, with peak times between 9am - 11am). If crowds present an issue for you, please request parking on campus when making a booking.


Venue Access

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.

Unfortunately we do not have any wheelchairs available to hire on site.

Lift access

The teaching buildings hosting talks and drop-in sessions have lift access to all floors in use.

Assistance on the day

If you require assistance with doors or lifts or you need directions, please ask a member of our team if you require directions or assistance on the day. They will be wearing blue (Staff), red (Senior Ambassador) or yellow (Student Ambassador) polo shirt uniforms.


Visual Impairments

If you wish to sit at the front of a venue to see and hear the speaker more clearly, please arrive at the session venue 15 minutes before the session is due to begin and ask the Student Ambassador on the door to seat you at the front. If you have any other specific access requirements, please ask the Student Ambassador before the session begins.


If you wish to discuss your requirements further, or if you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us. The Open Days team can be contacted by phone on 02476 523648 or by email on opendays@warwick.ac.uk
