Campus Life and Accessibility
To enable students with disabilities and special educational needs actively engage in campus life, various support services and accessible facilities are available:
- Campus Accessibility
All buildings on campus comply with the Statutory Regulations for “Buildings to be planned for use for disabled person”. Most buildings on campus are accessible via ramps or lifts. As the buildings were completed at different stages, their provisions for students with disabilities are in accordance with statutory requirements at the time of their completion and may therefore, vary slightly. In this connection, small-scale improvements have been and will continue to be made to improve accessibility and safety matching the provisions with the latest statutory requirements. Some of the barrier-free facilities equipped/built on campus are:
- Emergency call alarms are installed in disabled toilets.
- Ramps, railings and tactile guide paths are installed on campus.
- Lifts designated for the disabled are installed with Braille and tactile markings on the lift control panels and equipped with voice announcement function.
- Most of the escalators are equipped with audible warning signals to help the visually impaired identify the running direction of the escalators.
- Wheelchair lifting machine
