“We are delighted to be working with Disabled Go to bring their access guides here to Surrey. I am confident that all of our students, staff and visitors will benefit from the detailed access guides, which will provide a graphical summary of our campus accessibility using access icons, together with highly detailed information in relation to each of the key features of the campus.”
Peter Brinkley, Deputy Head of Estates and Facilities
The University of Surrey has a vibrant, enthusiastic and richly diverse culture. We are committed to creating and maintaining a friendly and welcoming campus-based community where our staff and students are able to benefit from an inclusive and supportive environment enabling them to fully participate in University life.
We want to attract students and staff with high potential to study and work here. As part of that we strive to ensure that the right support is in place for members of our community who are living with a disability, long term health condition, mental health condition or additional learning need.
As part of our pledge to continually make improvements to ensure that the campus is as accessible as possible, we have created a Facilities Improvement and Maintenance Plan to identify and remove any barriers to accessing buildings.
Support for students
Additional Learning Support (ALS) is a confidential support service for all disabled students and all students with neurodiverse conditions including specific learning differences.
All prospective students are encouraged to come and meet ALS, explore the campus and discuss any specific support needs.
