Facilities and getting around

Campus maps and accessibility map

City, University of London is situated across sites in central London.

Building Access - Northampton Square

Please contact us if you have any queries about accessibility.

Please note there are currently major works under way at the main entrance to the Northampton Square site.


The University is committed to helping students with disabilities and long-term medical conditions in making their accommodation arrangements.

The number of rooms in City's halls of residence is limited and may be offered subject to suitability and availability.

Adapted rooms

The University has adapted accommodation available in halls of residence. If you know that you require adapted accommodation, you should indicate this on your application for accommodation. Your individual needs will then be discussed with the Disability Support service and the Accommodation team prior to you beginning your studies. You should make your requirements known as early as possible during the application process so that we can do our best to ensure that the accommodation we offer you meets your needs.

If you become aware during your course that you require a particular adaptation which cannot be put in place easily by your Hall Manager, you should notify the Disability Support service, who will discuss your requirements and request reasonable adjustments on your behalf.

Currently, a number of rooms are adapted specifically for wheelchair users, while others are adapted for students with a range of other requirements.

Students with disabilities may sometimes be eligible to stay in halls of residence after their first year of undergraduate study, subject to availability, and this should be discussed with a Disability Advisor.

More information about accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate students can be found here


All of our campuses can be reached by public transport. If you have a mobility impairment or any disability-related travel difficulties and have queries about your journey to the University, please contact us to discuss your concerns.

Drivers with mobility difficulties should contact the Disability Support service for information about parking provision at the various University sites. 

The University does not currently have any parking available while major building work is underway in Sebastian Street.
