Launching the new accessibility guide at Aberystwyth University

19 March 2019

Aberystwyth University launched a comprehensive new resource on Friday 15 March that will enhance the experience of visitors on campus.

In collaboration with AccessAble, a leading provider of accessibility information for disabled people in the UK, Aberystwyth University has created an online guide for students, staff and visitors. These online resources will allow visitors to campus to make a choice about where to go on campus and how to get there.  It also means information on the accessibility of buildings and facilities across campus is all in one place, making it easier to plan journeys. 

To create the online guide, every University venue that's been listed was visited and assessed in person by a trained AccessAble surveyor in September 2018.

Speaking at the launch, Professor Tim Woods, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Learning, Teaching and Student Experience said: “We aim to provide all students with an experience of the highest quality, and to make our academic facilities available to all who meet our entrance requirements. The University’s partnership with AccessAble provides further evidence of our commitment to enhancing the experience and the accessibility of our services to students.”

David Livermore, Director of Business Development at AccessAble added: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Aberystwyth University to produce these detailed accessibility guides. The University has a clear commitment to equality of access and opportunity and the guides make an important contribution, enabling people to check buildings and services in advance to aid them in their navigation and orientation around campus.”
