The place of useful learning A leading international technological university
Home to over 18000 students (4% are students with disclosed disabilities) and 3000 staff (3% with disclosed disabilities), the University of Strathclyde is based in Glasgow - Scotland's largest cosmopolitan city.
We are committed to encouraging everyone to realise their full potential. As a leading provider of undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes and employment opportunities, we are firmly committed to achieving equality of opportunity in our learning, teaching, research and working environments.
Students and staff with disabilities receive a range of appropriate support including: assistive technology, learning support and where required exam related support.
We are striving to provide accessible information to support students, staff and visitors to make the best use of our facilities. We recognise that our hilltop campus can create access difficulties, however working with DisabledGo we endeavour to ensure all people are aware of the facilities available at the University.
The information on this website enables you to plan ahead and ensure your accessible needs are met when planning route, identifying access to and within buildings, toilet facilities and car parking facilities.
We trust you will find this guide useful and would welcome any feedback or suggestions for further improvement.
