Physical Access

Refer to the University website for campus maps, accessible toilets, lifts and parking spaces. 

Information for resident students requiring a University parking permit on medical grounds is available on the student transport website.

The campus and most buildings are generally accessible to most students with mobility difficulties.  Follow links for more detailed information on the accessibility of the University buildings: 

Students who have most successfully managed the campus have powered wheel chairs, mobility scooters or use their own cars.   

The disabled parking spaces are sited near the main buildings on campus to facilitate movement throughout the day. The parking spaces may be used by visitors who are blue badge holders  to park for up to 6 hours.  Resident students should apply for a University 'medical' permit, enabling them to park in campus and Manor Park disabled bays.  

Please contact ALS in advance of coming to Surrey and we will alert the department to arrange the timetable so that you only use accessible rooms.  Advance notice will also give us an opportunity to discuss support arrangements and adaptations to rooms.  We will also talk to you about the most accessible routes across campus and those to avoid.

The Students' Union is particularly difficult to access for wheelchair users and for manual wheel chair users there are some challenging hills which must be avoided.  

Most students with mobility difficulties are given accommodation on the main campus although there are some adapted rooms on the Manor Farm site.
