AccessAble and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine launch new Accessibility Guide

Renowned educator and research institute in public and global health becomes the latest of over 85 higher education providers across the UK to partner with AccessAble; the UK’s leading provider of detailed disabled-access information.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) has worked with AccessAble to create Detailed Access Guides to teaching/meeting spaces and rooms across all of their London buildings.

The Guides contain facts, figures and photographs to help students, visitors and staff plan their journeys to and around the university, covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to walking distances and accessible toilets.

AccessAble and LSHTM know everyone has different accessibility needs, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. All of the details you’ll find in the Guide have been checked in person, on site, by trained surveyors.                                                                                        

David Livermore, Director of Business Development at AccessAble, said:

“We are delighted to launch Detailed Access Guides to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s buildings. LSHTM have made a significant investment in accessibility. They’ve worked in partnership with us to ensure in-depth access information to the campus is easily available. That is vital for disabled students, staff and visitors and valuable for everybody. 

Our initiative is all about removing barriers to higher education and improving the experience for everyone. We welcome LSHTM into our national network of 85 universities across the country who are committed to including disabled people.”

Clare Matysova, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Manager at LSHTM, said: 

“At LSHTM, it’s important to us that everyone using our buildings has access to information and guidance suited to their needs. Whether current and prospective staff and students or a one-off visitor, we hope these guides with AccessAble will improve the experience of those accessing our buildings and provide a more inclusive, welcoming environment for all.”
