Accessing the Admissions Office

If you have difficulty with walking or climbing steps, with sight or with hearing, please let the Admissions Office (01865 277180) know in advance for advice about using the Libraries' facilities.

The Bodleian Libraries' Admissions Office itself is wheelchair accessible via the main Broad Street entrance of the Weston Library, and the reader entrance on Parks Road.

In order to facilitate access to our historic buildings we ask that wheelchair users, and readers who are experiencing difficulties with mobility, ring in advance to make arrangements.

The Office has an induction loop system for the benefit of hearing-aid users.
