Wherever possible, the University should be informed of any visitors with additional needs who may require assistance in the event of an evacuation, or parking facilities close to the Main Building.
Toilets are situated on the Ground Floor at the rear of the Security Control Room, on the Sixth Floor (North side), the Seventh Floor of the North Wing and at the rear of the Great Hall.
In the event of an evacuation, wheel chair users and persons with mobility difficulties should be taken to the nearest staircase and Security informed of their location. Under no circumstances should the lifts be used. Access to all stairwells is through fire doors which are heat/flame resistant for 30 minutes. In addition, the stairwells are fire proofed and made of concrete. As the fire station is situated next door to the Main Building, evacuation of mobility restricted visitors can be facilitated within minutes of the alarm being raised.
