The University of Sunderland can trace its origins back to 1860 when its founder colleges were opened. University buildings date from Victorian times to the new state of the art facilities.
By developing a planned programme of upgrading work the University is steadily improving access throughout the Campus and adaptations have already been incorporated into a number of buildings.
University student accommodation also takes into account the various needs of people with disabilities. There are a range of rooms with good access and facilities. New students should contact Residential Services as early as possible to discuss their own accommodation requirements.
