Accommodation for prospective students
Imperial College has a range of accommodation options for disabled students with additional needs. For more information about accommodation, please visit our College accommodation pages:
The Disability Advisory Service recommends that disabled students with additional needs contact us well in advance of starting at Imperial College. If you are likely to need your room adapting (for example having powered doors or a hoist) then the DAS will need you to contact us earlier, preferably before Easter. It is possible to arrange a visit to the College to discuss and visit College accommodation if you have significant additional needs.
Personal emergency evacuation plans
If you think you may have any difficulties in hearing the alarm or evacuating a building unaided in the event of an emergency due to a mobility or sensory impairment, a temporary injury (e.g. you may be on crutches) or have difficulty coping in crowds, you will require a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).
If you are an existing Imperial College student wanting to continue in College accommodation after your first year because of your additional support needs, then you should visit our continuing accommodation page.
