Students with Disabilities


Sunflower Lanyard Scheme

At the Students' Union, we are involved with the Sunflower Lanyard Scheme, supporting those with hidden disabilities. You can get in touch with our reception if you would like to request a sunflower lanyard at [email protected] or via our website live chat function in the bottom left corner of your browser.

Accessing Campus

AccessAble is an organisation that provides you with the accessibility information you need to work out if a place is going to be accessible for you. Their Detailed Access Guides tell you all about a venue's access and they have created various guides for buildings on campus. 

Check them out via these links here:

We’re also working on creating a more responsive map on Google Maps to show the best ways around campus. Check back here for more information soon.

Accessing Falmer House - your Union building


AccessAble also has a guide for Falmer House, your Students’ Union building.
