Department of Genetics

Dept entrance with lift

The main entrance to the building, which leads to Reception, has been adapted. The image at the top of the page shows the configuration. The flight of steps approaching the front door has a handrail, and there is a wheelchair lift.

The building complies with the requirements of the DDA and its supporting legislation. In most cases, any problems caused by deficits in the Department can be surmounted by modifying existing equipment, or making adjustments to the premises, should anyone require continued access.

The teaching room in the Department is fitted with a hearing induction loop. A portable induction loop is available for use in other areas, and can be picked up from Reception.

We are aware that not all disabilities are obvious and different people require different amounts of help. Please do ask us for help or information, and if possible say why you need a specific service.

Advance warning of a visit is especially strongly recommended during refurbishment. Please be reassured you are very welcome to visit the Department, and we will do our best to ensure that your requests for assistance are dealt with swiftly.

Reception: tel. [01223 3]33999
