Accessibility

We are committed to ensuring that every delegate can participate fully in IMC events and sessions.

Please let us know as early as possible if you have any specific requirements, such as information in alternative formats like Braille or large print, building access, or assistive listening systems. We will do our best to meet your needs.

Session rooms

All IMC sessions take place in wheelchair-accessible rooms. We can provide maps of all accessible routes on campus – please contact us or ask at the Information and Payment Desk when you arrive.

Many session rooms contain assistive listening systems, for which you will need to hire a receiver. Where a room does not have this facility, portable induction loops can be provided. Please contact us in advance if you think you may need to use these services.

Campus access assessments

Access reports on University buildings are being conducted individually as building work is completed across campus. However, access information on most buildings used for the IMC is available at AccessAble.

The locations of accessible entrances to all University buildings, can be found using the ‘Disabled Building Access’ filter on the University’s campus map.

Accessible and gender neutral bathrooms

All single-room accessible toilets on campus are gender neutral and will be signposted in all IMC buildings. Additional gender neutral toilets are located in Leeds University Union and the Fine Art Building, and will be marked on signage and building plans.

Parking

All visitors to the University are expected to pay to park their cars on campus. If you hold a valid EU blue badge or international equivalent, you can purchase parking in disabled bays. This costs £7.00 per day and can be booked through the online form when you register; each parking day pass expires at 00.00 (midnight) on the day for which it was purchased, so if you are staying on campus overnight, you will need to buy parking for both days.  We recommend booking as early as possible to reserve your parking space.

You will need to display your parking permit and blue badge in your car when you arrive. Your permit does not reserve you a specific parking space. Maps of accessible parking spaces on campus can be provided on request.

Accommodation

Fully accessible accommodation is available in some rooms at Charles Morris Hall – Storm Jameson Court, and at city centre hotels. Charles Morris Hall – Dobree & Whetton offers step-free access to all floors via a lift, but does not contain fully accessible rooms.

We recommend booking accessible rooms as early as possible, and ask you to provide as much information as possible about your needs so we can support you if required. Contact us beforehand if you would like to discuss your options.
