University of Wolverhampton
Welcome to the University of Wolverhampton
The University provides a friendly environment, excellent staff and great facilities at its main sites in Wolverhampton, Walsall and Telford.
We value the diversity of our student and staff populations and are committed to promoting equality for disabled people in all aspects of University life.
Our dedicated Student Enabling Centre enforces this commitment by offering a range of services, resources and advice to students at all stages of their university education.
We are well known for our excellent communication support for D/deaf students; our population includes one of the largest percentages of D/deaf students in UK higher education.
In addition, our academic and support staff have experience of supporting students with a variety of requirements, including wheelchair users, people with limited mobility, students with dyslexia, physical or sensory impairments and students with invisible conditions. Find out more about campus accessibility.
In recent years, we have made considerable improvements to our physical environment, upgrading or replacing most of our inaccessible areas with modern purpose built academic, accommodation, catering and conference facilities. Where various constraints make access more difficult we continue to look for ways to improve access.
Access to the majority of our buildings is restricted to students, staff and people attending pre-arranged visits. We are therefore able to ensure that people with physical access requirements receive individual support to identify the most accessible routes and facilities.
We are currently developing our enabling technology facilities to meet the needs of our courses, which have a strong focus on technology supported learning.
Our workforce of over 2500 staff includes an increasing number of disabled academic and support staff with a wide range of impairments, including staff with physical access needs. You can find all our job vacancies on the DisabledGo site.
