We’re committed to promoting equality in all our activities and aim to provide an environment free from discrimination and unfair treatment.

Openness is one of the University’s core values. We recognise that increasing opportunities for anyone who wants to engage with our campus community and facilities is also a benefit to us. Further information is available from our Equality and Diversity Unit

Physical Access

diasbledGo - physical access guide to buildingsThe University has teamed up with DisabledGo to provide an online description of the physical access features of over 80 university services and buildings, including the Hunterian Museum, Sports and Recreation Service, Library and various accommodation sites.

You'll find a list of all the buildings covered with links to the guides here.

If however, you experience an issue with physical access anywhere on campus, please email physicalaccessissues@gla.ac.uk where a member of Estates and Buildings staff will be able to help.

Building and Room Finder App

The University has developed an app (available as a mobile app for students and as a desktop version) designed to provide you with directions from one building to another on campus.  You can also get directions to particular rooms and it is linked to DisabledGo's website so you can get information on building access.  The desktop version is available here Building and Room Finder App

Accessibility maps

We have produced accessibility maps for our main campus. These highlight where there are accessible parking spaces and toilets.

Mobility Scooters

Mobility Scooters are available for loan on a daily basis for those who have difficulty moving between locations on campus.  Please contact the Disability Service directly for further details.

Disability Infrastructure Working Group (DIWG)

The DIWG acts as the principal forum for consultation on access opportunities within the campus estates strategy and major developments within the University.
