Aberystwyth University have partnered with AccessAble to create Detailed Access Guides to over 100 buildings and services, 200 different teaching spaces and 20 routes around and between campuses.
The Guides are 100% facts, 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.
Speaking at the launch event on 15th March Professor Tim Woods, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Learning, Teaching and Student Experience said: “We aim to provide all students with an experience of the highest quality, and to make our academic facilities available to all who meet our entrance requirements. The University’s partnership with AccessAble provides further evidence of our commitment to enhancing the experience and the accessibility of our services to students.”
David Livermore, Director of Business Development at AccessAble added: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Aberystwyth University to produce these detailed access guides. The University has a clear commitment to equality of access and opportunity and the guides make an important contribution, enabling people to check buildings and services in advance to aid them in their navigation and orientation around campus.”

The information to Aberystwyth University’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.
