Accessibility is fundamental to our core values and we endeavour to create an environment that is open to all.

Buildings within Wadham College vary in degrees of accessibility to people with physical disabilities.  Some of our buildings date as far back as the seventeenth century and are presently not fully accessible.  However, we will do as much as we can to make reasonable physical adjustments or arrangements to make the College as accessible as possible.  The extent to which we are able to to do this depends upon individual requirements, but we do have experience of many students and staff with disabilities living and working within the College.

Please do contact us for more information and to discuss your requirements.

Please note that Wadham is an educational environment and the College may close to visitors without notice.  Visitors are advised to contact the College before planning a visit. For all general enquiries please contact Wadham College Lodge.  Our staff will be pleased to assist.  They can advise you on contacting all College departments and may be contacted on:

Please submit your comment by e-mail, mail, phone or in person.  We look forward to your feedback and working with the College community to ensure that Wadham College is accessible to all of its members to the maximum extent possible.
