Sussex Estates and Facilities

Campus accessibility

Our facilities staff aim to maintain and improve accessibility across campus at all times, ensuring that level and lift access is available in academic buildings.

Accessibility updates are now available on the campus works page.

Please consult this page for regular updates on accessibility impacts, such as lift and automatic door outages.

Maintaining and improving accessibility is a priority for all facilities staff at SEF - we regularly undertake checks and repairs on lifts and automatic doors on campus, and our Grounds team maintains all campus pathways.

If you experience an outage or issue with accessibility in a non-residential building, please contact the Service Centre at Residents can contact their porter in the event of any issues.
