There are two accessible toilets on the ground floor. The Alexander Building at Thornlea is fully accessible with a lift to all event locations, and level access into the building. One seminar room is on the 2nd floor, along with one of our sound studios, but these are not used for public events, and we can obviously move classes involving students with mobility problems to alternative locations.
All performance spaces are fully accessible to all users with mobility issues of any kind.
