People with a disability must be able to get the best possible use of the AUAS's buildings.

What can I expect?

The AUAS buildings must satisfy the statutory requirements regarding people with a disability. Consequently, buildings where teaching activities are conducted must at least have the following facilities:

  • one lift that can be accessed by wheelchair users;
  • one toilet for disabled persons with reduced mobility;
  • a hearing loop in large halls for the hearing impaired;
  • parking spaces for persons with a disability at around 50 metres from the main entrance (of buildings with parking spaces). See 'Parking' for details.
