Accessibility

Toilet facilities with wheel chair access are located on each level of UTS Central with lift access available from the entry level. Staff and students who need access to lifts for Level 8 and Level 9 can go to the Level 7 security desk. Visitors who need lift access to the Reading Room's Level 6, can get access via the Level 5 security desk (inside the UTS Reading Room). Clients can contact security staff on 9514 1192 or ext 1192 for accessibility assistance.*

* Note: Students and staff who are registered with Accessibility Services will be contacted separately and their ID cards will be updated to allow permanent access to lifts and doors. Security staff at the Security desk outside UTS Library on Level 7 and inside the Reading Room on Level 5 will provide students and staff with accessibility needs with a temporary card to access the library on Levels 6, 8 and 9. This temporary access card is to be returned to the Security desk on departure. 

UTS Library clients are welcome to put any accessibility concerns in writing via email to lib-feedback@uts.edu.au
