Accessibility to University
It is important that all members of our community can experience an environment where they can achieve their ambitions and potential.
A University for everyone
We aim to become fully accessible, transforming the University so that everyone in our campus community can have a truly inclusive experience.
We are currently updating our digital platforms to make sure that anyone can use our website, regardless of any impairment. Our Accessibility Statement outlines the work underway. You can find out about how we are evolving the Student Hub. We also offer clear Accessibility Guidelines to support staff when sharing content on our website and through other channels.
Our Technology Enhanced Learning team provides specialist guidance to staff to ensure our online learning environment and resources are usable for all, including those with disabilities and specific learning differences. Find out more about our digital accessibility for learning.
Access and guidance
Useful information about accessing our buildings, parking options and upcoming works is available on the Campus Access webpage. Further campus information and guidance is provided by Sussex Estates and Facilities. You can also explore how we are investing in our campus development to make our stunning 60-year-old campus better.
Our recently-opened Student Centre is the go-to place for students to access face-to-face information, advice and guidance services. Accessible to all, the Student Centre provides a lift to the top floors, accessible toilets and a changing place.
The University is a member of the Disability Confident scheme which supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace and helps organisations successfully recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. Sussex is also a registered member of the Business Disability Forum (BDF), a not-for-profit organisation that makes it easier and more rewarding to do business with and employ disabled people.
Improving access to higher education
The Widening Participation team supports learners who are under-represented in higher education, equipping them with the awareness, advice and opportunities that they need to make informed choices about their future and succeed beyond school. Our Access and Participation Plan outlines our commitment to improving access to higher education.
