The University of Nottingham is working with AccessAble, the UK’s leading provider of detailed disabled access information, to create detailed access guides to teaching/meeting spaces and routes across all UK campuses.
The guides include information, description and photographs which help people navigate the levels of accessibility of university buildings, services and rooms.
They cover everything from parking to hearing loops, walking distances and accessible toilets. As well as guides to buildings and rooms, the app will also identify potential issues for neurodivergent people and provide locations of breastfeeding rooms and female-only showers.
The free accessibility guides are for students, staff and visitors to the university.
As part of the university’s central Disability Recognition Month event, David Livermore from AccessAble will be presenting a talk on how the university is working with AccessAble to survey all of its UK campuses to create the new digital accessibility system.
On Thursday 17 November, he will deliver a short online demo session to showcase what staff and students can expect from the new digital system.
For more information about the project, please contact Dean Eales, Head of Partnerships at AccessAble.
