Accessibility

It is vital that all of our students can make the most out their time at Lincoln; we strive to ensure that we accommodate the needs of all of our members and we are dedicated to making all aspects of College life as accessible as possible.

Site accessibility and location

The main Lincoln College site is on Turl Street. We have an additional site on Museum Road, as well as some student accommodation and a sports ground elsewhere in the city. Accessibility information for the main site is available in the College Access Guide.

Student accommodation

After your first year, student accommodation is allocated by a housing ballot. However, if you have specific accommodation requirements (due to accessibility or medical reasons, for example) you will be exempt from the housing ballot and will be allocated an appropriate bedroom.

Accessible undergraduate bedrooms are available on the main College site and at Museum Road. As of 2021, there will also be accessible bedrooms in the Mitre.

There is accessible accommodation for graduate students in both the EPA Centre and Little Clarendon Street.

The Library

Detailed information regarding accessibility in the Library can be found here. To discuss further support, including equipment that may facilitate your use of the Library, please contact the Librarian.

For more information about the University’s services, including the Disability Advisory Service (DAS) and the Accessible Resources Unit (ARACU), please see here. The Bodleian provides a document conversion service, SensusAccess, that converts readings into alternative formats including audio books and digital Braille.

Telling us about your needs

It is important that when applying to Lincoln College, you disclose any disabilities, specific learning difficulties (SpLD) or long term health conditions. This means you can benefit more quickly from the full range of support available at the University. You can also contact us at any point in your studies to make a disclosure. Either way, it will have no impact on your academic record, but it will help us to:

  • Understand the challenges you face and offer suitable help
  • Make reasonable adjustments and develop a tailored support package to meet your needs

We are more than happy to discuss the support we can offer you before you make an application to Lincoln. For any information on how Lincoln can support you to succeed in your studies, we would recommend contacting our Disability Coordinator.
