Accessibility at Pembroke


The Main Site of the College is largely disabled accessible for Undergraduates, including all quads, the Hall and Hall Bar, JCR, Chapel, The Pichette Auditorium, Farthings Café and the ground Floor of the Library.

All conference and seminar rooms in Rokos Quad are wheelchair accessible and most have hearing loops and lighting suitable for persons with conditions such as epilepsy and Autism. If you would like to book a room with these facilities, including arranging tutorials over the course of a term, you can contact the events department via email or 01865 276484.

A map indicating disabled accessible facilities and lifts can be found here.

A University-wide building access guide can be found here.



Pembroke offers specific accommodation for the students with physical disabilities. These are ensuite rooms with disabled accessible wet rooms. These rooms are also suitable for profoundly deaf students. Such disabled accessible rooms are some of the ‘E’ band rooms, which when occupied by a disabled student are charged at a ‘D’ Band rate.

Arrangements, such as ensuring an ensuite room, can also be made if you suffer from chronic illnesses which require the regimentation of routine or specific consideration of immune defences and hygiene.

You can talk to Jane Osborne or David Green from the Accommodation Office about accommodation needs and arrangements to help support you during your time at Pembroke
