Access
at Regent's

Access is of obviously of key importance. Due to the age of the buildings at Regent’s Park Campus and the Marylebone site, there are some accessibility challenges but most areas are accessible and we have a continual programme of improvement. Wherever there are challenges we work with individuals to facilitate easy and safe access.

What we do:

  • Give information, advice and guidance for disability related concerns
  • Set up Student Support Agreements
  • Organise exam concessions such as, extra time
  • Assist with applications for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)
  • Arrange screenings for SpLDs such as, dyslexia and dyspraxia
  • Advise staff on reasonable adjustments so disabled students are not disadvantaged
  • Arrange 1:1 sessions with the SpLD specialist
  • Book counselling appointments
  • Arrange in class support (Non-Medical Helpers) such as note takers

But we cannot:

  • Give information about individual degree courses
  • Provide subject-specific support
  • Send out exam timetables
  • Assist with course finance enquiries
  • Provide or fund support with daily living tasks e.g. assistance with shopping, cooking, or personal care

Accommodation

This is provided at Park Campus as well as off-site, at facilities run and managed by approved Regent’s providers. Off-site accommodation is fully accessible and we have arrangements where specific rooms are made available for those with particular disabilities. At Park campus some wheelchair accessible residential accommodation is available at ground floor level.

Lifts

There are several wheelchair accessible lifts throughout the campus.

Toilets

Wheelchair accessible toilets are situated throughout the University. These can be opened by a RADAR key which can be loaned from the Disability Coordinator or borrowed from Reception or Library staff on the first floor Jebb Building.
