All disabled toilets require a radar key and the Guild assumes that the person wishing to avail of these services will carry a radar key – in addition the Guild ensures that reception staff, security staff, and bar staff will be able to provide these keys within five minutes of one being requested at all times.
Mobile accessible toilets are used when our events are held externally - We aim to have a variety, with at least one that can accommodate users of large motorised scooters/wheelchairs.
There are 7 refuge points located on each floor of the Guild. On arrival, staff will be able to inform disabled guests of the whereabouts of these points but they are clearly marked and signed. The emergency procedure has clear guidelines for the safe evacuation from these areas should that be deemed necessary. Evacuation chairs are located by every staircase throughout the building and the two main bars in the Guild have lower areas so that wheelchair users can see and communicate with the bar staff easily during any emergency.
The Guild of Students is located within the Selly Oak campus of the University of Birmingham and is easily accessible by road and rail. Maps and directions can be accessed here: Directions

Any student with a Student Support Agreement is entitled to benefit from the '2 for 1' ticket scheme for the following Guild events: Fab 'n' Fresh, Sports Night, Grad Ball, and Sports Ball. This enables disabled students to bring a carer to these events free of charge. To obtain the offer, disabled students should show the front page of their agreement to the staff when purchasing their ticket, in order to receive a free ticket in return. This agreement must again be shown on the night of the event.
If purchasing your ticket online, choose your event here: Events list, then complete the purchase of one ticket as a single transaction, and bring proof of your Student Support Agreement with you on the date of the event, in order to gain entrance for your carer. If you do not have internet access, an alternative way of booking tickets would be to purchase from Joes bar between 11am-11pm.
An early entrance option can be made available upon request, email email@example.com.

The Guild ensures adequate viewing platforms at some of our key events such as Grad Ball – these are large enough to ensure +1 companion but prior notification of this requirement is advised.
If strobe lighting is intended to be used at an event, a general warning will be issued with clear information provided about how and when it is to be used. Warnings will be given both before and during performances.
