  • Blue badge holders – students who are registered as disabled and have a current blue badge authorised by their local authority
  • Students with temporary physical impairments due to accident or injury, who can provide medical evidence
  • Students who are pregnant and are able to provide medical evidence indicating the need for parking and clearly stating the duration required

Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs)

A Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan is a bespoke plan for any students who require assistance from evacuating a building.

PEEP arrangements are in place to ensure that anyone in our buildings can escape safely in the event of an emergency. If for any reason, you are not able to evacuate a building unaided during an emergency situation, please inform Health and Safety so we may set up the risk assessment that is specific to you. This will take into your account your situation including where you may live (if on campus), and where you study as well.

To inform Health and Safety please:
