UCL is committed to improving access to UCL's estate and its duties under the Equality Act 2010. We complement the audits that have been carried out by the Estates Department through on-going consultation with the community to ensure we are investing in those adjustments which have the most positive effect as we work to increase our inclusive footprint.
UCL Estates have produced an Inclusive Design Guide which encapsulates the standards of BS8300:2009 and will be applied to all projects at UCL. We recognise that this is an ongoing process that we have a duty to be proactive in addressing the issues inherent in a large and complex estate.
We are planning how we invest in the estate but recognise that there will be cases where reasonable adjustments will need to be made in relation to individual needs. All requests for reasonable adjustments should be made through the Customer Services Centre using the Service Request Form.
Information on the accessibility of teaching and centrally bookable spaces is held on the estates and facilities website which has a database of bookable spaces including a list of rooms against the positive and difficulties features which may be encountered.
UCL has a route finder service which shows accessible routes around the UCL campus:
