Access to the Careers Service

  • The Student Services Centre is fully accessible.
  • The Careers Service is on the second floor with lift access.
  • There are accessible toilet facilities throughout the building.
  • Parking is extremely limited. There are only two accessible car parking spaces. However, the Grand Arcade Car Park is nearby and has many accessible spaces.

Access for appointments with careers consultants

One of the careers consultation rooms on the second floor and all consultation rooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible. If you use a wheelchair please notify the Careers Service on making your appointment so that we can ensure an appropriate space.

Access to resources

  • As in any library, some information is on shelves that may be out of reach for some users. Do not hesitate to ask Information Staff to help you access any materials you need.
  • We have an overnight lending collection and most other material is reference only. If a student uses a personal reader or other equipment for reading we will lend all material out for use outside the Careers Service.

Access to events and sessions

  • All Careers Service run events are in wheelchair accessible venues.
  • Presentations by employers are booked by them in a variety of spaces in the town, some of which are in heritage buildings without good access. Please check access to such events before attending.
  • The University are working with AccessAble to create Access Guides to the buildings and services on the various campuses so that visitors, staff and students can make an informed choice as to whether a venue is suitable for them before they go.

Contact the Careers Service Information Team at to discuss any requirements you may need such as materials in a variety of formats (USB stick, coloured paper, Braille etc)

We have careers advice and information for students with disabilities.
