Queen's University is working in conjunction with DisabledGo to produce Access Guides for the University's buildings and services, including hundreds of teaching spaces.
DisabledGo.com is the UK’s most popular Accessibility Checker. It’s totally free to use and has loads of detailed information about the accessibility of all kinds of places across the UK, including Universities, Colleges, hospitals, restaurants, tourist attractions, shops and more.
The Guides will provide useful information, such as the location of accessible parking spaces, entrances, toilets, together with measurements and photographs. There will be lots of detail and the information won’t just be about physical access, it will cover things that people with visual impairments, hearing impairments, autism, dementia, learning disabilities and mental health issues have all said are important. Each building will be visited and assessed by a trained surveyor, so you can get all the facts.
Anna Nelson, Executive Director of DisabledGo, said: “We are delighted to be working with Queen’s University Belfast who has a clear commitment to equality of access and opportunity. We feel the detailed accessibility guides will make an important contribution, enabling people to check facilities in advance so they can have the best possible experience and education.”
The guides are due to launch in summer 2018 and will be available on the Queen’s University Belfast website and through DisabledGo’s website.
All QUB enquiries should be forwarded to Barry Mulholland in Estates by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
