2. Policy statement
The University recognises it is a fundamental right for staff, students and visitors to access events held on campus. The University has a large and complex campus, with listed building, varying gradients and poorly designed (in terms of access) buildings. This makes access challenging.
However, as a basic principle, all events open to the public or a wide internal audience (excluding general teaching) should be held in an accessible venue. This includes Open Days, Applicants’ Visit Days, induction events and those hosted at a local (School/RI/Subject/Service) level.
This policy does not cover room booking requirements in relation to general teaching. If you have accessibility requirements in relation to this either for a member of staff or a student, the School/College must inform the Central Timetabling Team (CTT) when making a booking request.
