Accessibility

Jesus College is committed to being as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.

Some of our architecture is historic, which makes some access requirements difficult to accommodate, but we are always looking for ways to improve the experience people have when working, studying or visiting here.

Below is some information about accessibility at Jesus College. 

Buildings

Accessibility information for all Cambridge colleges can be found on the University’s Disability Resource Centre website.

Applications

The University of Cambridge Disability Resource Centre (DRC) website contains lots of useful information about applying to Cambridge. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the DRC at any point in the application process. Enquiries before application are welcomed.

Information about funding for disabled postgraduate students can be on the Postgraduate Admissions Office website.

Prospective applicants are also welcome to contact our Tutorial department with any queries about their application or accessibility requirements for admissions interviews.

Parking

We have two accessible parking spaces which can be found to the left of Boaty Arch. Enter via the Victoria Avenue gate then turn left when you reach the College buildings. If you are visiting West Court you may find it easier to park in the accessible bays on Jesus Lane near Pizza Express and Primo Cycles; they are geographically closer to that part of the College and the walk to the building is cobble and step-free.

Events

We have several fully accessible event spaces. We aim to offer all attendees assistance on arrival where needed, but if you have specific requirements, please contact us in advance.

More information can be found in the Conferences and Events section of our website.

Accommodation

We have some accessible undergraduate and postgraduate accommodation. Students with any access requirements or questions are encouraged to email our Student Rooms team.

We have one wheelchair accessible guest room in our West Court accommodation, complete with a wet room. If you have any further queries please contact the West Court reception desk.

Website and intranet accessibility

We are committed to making online content accessible for all users. If you have any questions or encounter an issue, please contact the Communications Office. Please include the relevant URL(s) in your message and, if possible, a screenshot of the issue.
