The University Find Us page also gives maps of each campus.

We have worked in partnership with AccessAble to produce access guides for many of our sites. AccessAble, originally called DisabledGo, are an independent organisation that aim to take the stress out of visiting a new place. Their trained surveyors visit locations to produce detailed guides that tell you all about a venue's access. 

They recognise that everyone's accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed accurate information is important. The guides they produce are 100% facts, figures and photographs. 

The AccessAble site gives more specific accessibility details of each campus and routes between campuses. You can also see a list of key route plans.
