The main entrance to the building is in St John Street. There are no steps. Readers with mobility problems can be given access from the outer lobby into the library itself through the swing gate exit to facilitate entry. You can also choose to remain on floor G for the duration of your visit and have a desk reserved for you. Please contact desk staff (email@example.com) in advance of your visit.
All floors, except for the Haverfield Room, are accessible by lift. If you require lift use, please contact the library ahead of your visit.
Disabled toilets are off the outer lobby (floor G) and on floor 2.
For more detailed accessibility information, visit the University Access Guide.
Readers who are unable to evacuate by stairs should discuss an evacuation plan with the library staff before accessing these floors. If out of order, disabled readers may use the staff lift. The lift will stop working in case of a fire alarm. The lift is equipped with an emergency call button, which can be used in the event of a lift failure to summon assistance. After 4.30pm the lift service company can take up to 4 hours to attend a breakdown. Readers should bear this in mind when choosing to use the lift after this time.
