Our disability policy

We aim to:

  • Protect the interests and needs of disabled users.
  • Provide dedicated parking spaces where a need is identified.
  • Issue permits in line with local authority guidelines for Blue Badge holders.

What we've done:

  • Introduced a special permit to identify disabled users, giving them the right to park in any convenient space, including marked disabled spaces.
  • Marked convenient and easy to access spaces for disabled users where required.
  • Provided free disabled parking across campus for Blue Badge holders.
  • Introduced a zero tolerance police for abuse of spaces by non-disabled users.
  • Agreed special ad-hoc temporary arrangements as appropriate.

Our future priorities:

  • Continue to provide marked disabled spaces where required.
  • Work closely with University disability coordinators to clarify policy with regard to disabled parking.
