Your Student Union takes the issue of accessibility seriously. We have been audited by Attitude is Everything and have received a Bronze Award for being an accessible entertainment venue.  The Union is an accessible building with all its entertainment space on the ground floor. We have disabled toilet facilities and well trained staff who will make sure you have a great time at the Union.

If you have any access needs to help you get the most out of the student Union events programme just contact us on our dedicated access services to tell us what we can do to help.

If you would like to bring an enabler along to any ticketed event we offer a 2 for 1 deal. Simply come in to the union, call or email our dedicated access service to book your tickets.


The Union has a dedicated viewing platform in Zero Degrees and can have this in place for most events. If you’d like to request this for a specific event please call or email our dedicated access service.

Early entry

If you would like to have early entry to an event please call or email our dedicated access service and we would be happy to arrange this.

Induction loop

We have a portable induction loop in the Union and can have this available for visitors at any time. Just ask Reception when you arrive.

Access address book

When you contact us to let us know what access needs you have - we will store this information in a secure file so that when you next come in you don’t have to go through the same process again. Just let us know when you’re coming in and we’ll make sure everything is sorted.

BSL events

We are working with the University Language School to provide BSL signing at events. We’re not quite ready yet but watch this space!
