The University of Edinburgh has partnered with Disabled-Go to provide access guides and other accessibility services to students, staff and visitors who may require additional support to make the most of our multi-campus estate.

Our Vision

The University of Edinburgh’s mission is the creation, dissemination and curation of knowledge. As a world-leading centre of academic excellence we aim to:

• Enhance our position as one of the world’s leading research and teaching universities and to measure our performance against the highest international standards

• Provide the highest quality learning and teaching environment for the greater wellbeing of our students

• Produce graduates fully equipped to achieve the highest personal and professional standards

• Make a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to Scotland, the UK and the world, promoting health and economic and cultural wellbeing.

As a great civic university, Edinburgh especially values its intellectual and economic relationship with the Scottish community that forms its base and provides the foundation from which it will continue to look to the widest international horizons, enriching both itself and Scotland.

We aspire to be a place of first choice for some of the world’s most talented students and staff and central to this ambition is that everyone has the opportunity to participate in and contribute to our community.

In addition to Disabled-Go, the University of Edinburgh provides a range of support for students with access and participation requirements through the Student Disability Service. This service supports students to enable them to participate in both their studies and wider university and community life. Staff are also supported through the Disabled Staff Network which meets regularly to identify and improve the working experience at the University.
