Queen’s University Belfast have partnered with AccessAble to create Accessibility Guides to over 380 buildings, services and teaching spaces; including the McClay Library, Lanyon Building and University Square.
The Guides are 100% fact, figures and photographs and will give you loads of useful information to work out if somewhere is going to be accessible to you. They cover everything from parking to hearing loops, walking distances and accessible toilets.
The free Accessibility Guide is for students, visitors and staff and is available at www.AccessAble.co.uk and on the AccessAble App.
Anna Nelson, Executive Director of AccessAble said:
‘We are delighted to launch our Accessibility Guides to Queen’s University Belfast. It has been a fantastic partnership and we hope other partners across Northern Ireland, and the UK more widely, will look to follow the University’s example of putting inclusion at the heart of staff and student experience.’
Commenting on the new Guides Peter Erwin, Head of Estates Services at Queen’s University Belfast said:
‘The information contained on AccessAble and the building Accessibility Guides is vital to improving the accessibility of our University to visitors, staff and students alike. We have already received positive feedback from users on the ease of use and intuitive nature of the website as well as the newly-released app.’
To take a look at the University’s new Accessibility Guide simply go to https://www.accessable.co.uk/organisations/queen-s-university-belfast.
The information to Queen’s University Belfast’s sites joins over 125,000 places already covered across the UK, making www.AccessAble.co.uk a great tool for planning a day out or trip away.
