Disability and accessibility

Much of the Mile End campus, including all of the Student Village, has been built within the last twenty-five years and has good accessibility for disabled people; some of the older buildings are more problematic, although QMUL is committed to ensuring that all of its facilities are fully accessible. The Disability and Dyslexia Service has been working closely with the Projects Office since 2008 on an ongoing programme of work to eliminate any barriers to access for disabled people; this year, for example, we have been looking at improving access into the Queens’ Building. In the event that an issue with accessing any part of the university’s campuses becomes apparent QMUL will endeavour to resolve this as a matter of urgency.    

QMUL has worked with DisabledGo in order to produce Access Guides for our campuses. Access guides to the various buildings at Mile End are available online here.

The detailed access guide for the Engineering Building (home to C4DM) is available here:


If required information is not available through the DisabledGo guides then students can also contact QMUL’s Estates Department to obtain a map of accessible entrances, toilet facilities and car parks.  The Disability and Dyslexia Service can also liaise with the department that books teaching space to ensure that lectures are held in the most accessible rooms for those with mobility issues.


There are limited blue badge holder spaces available. Please contact us in advance to check availability: wac2017 at easychair dot org
