How can we improve our AccessAble service?

Please contact David Traske with your comments and suggestions.

We welcome the talents and commitment of disabled students and staff, and value the expertise and skills that all members of Imperial College London bring.

In keeping with our Disability Equality Scheme the College aims to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people.

Access guides

AccessAble (previously 'DisabledGo') is a national organisation which provides free online access guides to over 80,000 venues across the UK and Ireland.  Access Able logo - your accessibility guide

We are pleased that in partnership with AccessAble we provide up to date, highly detailed information for all campuses specifically to help people with an accessibility need.

Around 20 per cent of the College estate is re-surveyed each year to update the guides - although in early 2019 there was a major survey of nearly all buildings.  In 2020 we included the newly built Sir Michael Uren Hub at our White City Campus and in early 2024 we included the new School of Public Health also at White City.

St Mary's Medical School SMMS Access Handbook Rev4 (pdf)Access handbook CX  and Brompton Access handbook provide comprehensive site specific access information.

DeafWatch transmitters

In response to the needs of Imperial College’s students and staff, we have installed DeafWatch transmitters across twenty nine buildings at our campuses.

The DeafWatch system works across multiple buildings, providing seamless but discreet day and night time fire alarm warnings for staff and students with a hearing impairment. Pagers are available via the College Fire Office and the College's Disability Advisory Service.
