- Disability Access
Occupational Health and Safety – Equity of Access
In keeping with the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act (1992), the University’s own Disability Action Plan and various other University policies, Infrastructure Branch is committed to providing equity of access (or universal access) to all students, staff and visitors to the University of Adelaide.
The legacy infrastructure of the North Terrace campus is a particular challenge, with stairs, steps and steep gradients all presenting barriers to access.
The official opening of the North Terrace Campus External Lift on 17 February 2006 is a major example of the influence of equity of access principles on the design of new projects.
The lift and its network of ramps provide both access to the Hub and Horace Lamb Buildings and unrestricted north/south access on the eastern side of the campus.
Infrastructure Branch projects with significant equity of access outcomes include:
- The reconfiguration of the foyers of the Napier Building.
- Improved disability access and smooth, graded paving in the North Terrace Heritage Precinct project.
- The installation of automatic doors to the main entrances of six buildings on the North Terrace Campus.
- Construction of seven new fully-compliant access toilets across the North Terrace Campus.
- The re-configuration of the University Contact Centre counter to allow for wheelchair access on both sides.
- The ramped access to the new Faculty of Sciences Office in the Darling Building – typifying the inclusion of equity of access principles in construction and refurbishment projects.
Other ongoing works to improve equity of access projects across the North Terrace Campus include:
- Upgrading of external stairs & ramps
- Re-tensioning of doors
- Installation of signage
Equity of access is of core consideration across all University Campuses. Ramps, doors and fittings are designed according to Objective 14 of the University’s Disability Action Plan.
- Access to Secured Buildings
Access to Buildings (Control System)
Many University buildings are secured both externally and internally with an access control system administered from the Security Office. To gain access to secure building on campus use your university staff or student card provided by Ask Adelaide.
Once enabled, your card will allow access to the appropriate areas authorised by your departmental Access Control Delegate.
The Security Office will provide advice and can install electronic and mechanical access control systems where required. This includes card access, locks or digital code pads.
- Out of Hours Building Access
In buildings with access control systems, your university staff or student card may not grant you access out of hours. Contact your Access Control Delegate to increase the hours of access authorisation. For all other enquiries contact Ask Adelaide.
Alternatively, written authorisation from the Faculty or area manager is required for access to buildings after hours. Please contact Security to submit an admission request to the building with the following details:
- location of building where after hours access is required
Please wait for a confirmation before proceeding to access the building. Buildings are not unlocked after hours including weekends without prior authority.
