Buildings and student accommodation access

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.

  • St Peter's Campus is very accessible in all ways, particularly for those with mobility difficulties. It is located a half mile from the City Centre with ample car parking and a regular University Bus Service from other campus locations and student Halls of Residence.
  • The most recent development is The Gateway on the City Campus. Student Services and the Student Union are linked to the gateway, providing a 'one-stop-shop' for services and information that help students get the most out of student life.  
  • CitySpace, has a six-badminton court sports hall, 70 station fitness suite, sports massage and injuries centre, multi-purpose room, indoor climbing wall, retail, social, catering, leisure and exhibition spaces.
  • If you have mobility difficulties and encounter any problems with accessibility please let us know so that we can work with you on potential solutions.

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.

Student accommodation

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.
