For staff


Guides provide detailed accessibility information

As part of its commitment to creating accessible and inclusive environments, the University of Cambridge has worked in collaboration with AccessAble to produce detailed information on accessibility across the University estate for students, staff and the general public. The guides are available across a range of platforms, providing a resource for anyone wishing to study at or work at the University of Cambridge, or for those visiting the University and the city.

The guides cover over 130 university buildings on all of the main sites, across all schools and many institutions. They are reviewed on an annual basis and also contain the functionality for individuals to report any changes or amendments themselves from within the guides.

AccessAble was set up in 2000 by Dr Gregory Burke, a graduate of Cambridge and King’s College, as a result of his own experiences as a wheelchair user and disabled walker. The company’s mission is “to help people who face accessibility issues live their life to the full, and access all their community has to offer, by providing essential detailed accessibility information”.

The guides are also available via the AccessAble App which is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
