Campus Accessibility

Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP)

If you are likely to have difficulty in safely evacuating University buildings in the event of an emergency, please discuss your requirements with your Disability Adviser. Your Disability Adviser will gather some further information about your requirements and possible support/ adjustment requirements and will pass this information on to your faculty. 


Your faculty will then liaise with you to draw up a PEEP which meets your requirements.

You can find information on the locations of accessible toilets, access routes, lifts etc. using  FindaRoom.

Advice for Wheelchair users

Due to the natural gradient of our Pontypridd campuses, we strongly recommend that powered wheelchairs are utilised.

Safe Zone

SafeZone is a free mobile phone app for University students and staff to use. It's easy to download and gives you immediate access to on-campus security and a team of first responders through your mobile phone.


SafeZone lets you get help quickly in a personal emergency, or if someone needs first aid or general help. SafeZone also sends you notifications in the event of an emergency, so you know what to do to stay safe.


On-Campus Parking

Apply for a disabled student's parking permit by completing an application form and returning it to [email protected]

If you are a Blue Badge holder then a disabled parking permit will be issued free of charge.

If you are not in receipt of a blue badge, then supporting medical evidence will need to be provided with your application and a fee will be charged for the permit which can be paid online.

Please note that parking on campus cannot be guaranteed.


Disability Support at the Library

The USW library service aims to provide the widest possible access to learning and teaching resources and to remove any barriers resulting from disability or additional learning needs. Find out more on their Accessibility pages.
