There is a wheelchair-height gate to the entrance to the Edward Boyle Library. There are lifts at each end of the floor in the Library, except on level 7 (Conference Room) where there is a wheelchair lift.

Brotherton Library

There is a wheelchair-height gate at the entrance to the Library which gives access to a wheelchair lift to the main floor. There are lifts within the Library.

Please note that if you require a wheelchair accessible route into the Brotherton Library in the evening and at weekends you will need to use the secured entry though the School of Chemistry. This door opens automatically 9:00-17:00 Monday to Friday, and at other times by swiping the card reader located to the left with either a staff, student or Library membership card. Visitors without a card can press the buzzer above the card reader, which is connected to a videophone in Library reception, and speak to a member of staff who can open the door remotely.

An accessible toilet is in the West Building, floor 2, next to the lift.
