The Medical Sciences Teaching Centre has no allocated disabled parking but with prior arrangement a space can be booked out at Pathology (adjacent building).  The building can be accessed via a series of ramps leading behind the pathology buildings- continue on past the pathology buildings into a rear cark park, on the left hand side you should see the building and the ramps. 

If the weather is awful or you cannot manage ramps unaided, there is an alternative route via the pathology buildings using a lift up and a ramp down.  To use this route you will need to call ahead and be escorted by a member of staff (01865 285777).
