Access to buildings and facilities

The University of Cambridge has an extensive building access guide covering most of the University’s sites to help our staff, students and visitors, which is available from our Disability Resource Centre: See the building access guide.

CRASSH is located in the Alison Richard Building (ARB) which is on the University of Cambridge’s Sidgwick Site. The ARB has step-free access and the main seminar rooms (SG1 and SG2) are located on the ground. Accessible toilets are available on all floors. Disabled parking is available outside the Alison Richard Building.

General accessibility information about the Sidgwick Site, including disabled parking, is available on the University’s Disability Resource Centre website.

We would typically be able to waive registration fees for personal assistants to disabled people, and service animals are welcome.

Access to in-person or online events

At CRASSH we endeavour to make our activities as accessible as possible, in line with the BPA/SWIP guidelines on accessible conferences and events.

If you have any specific accessibility needs for a CRASSH event, please get in touch. We will do our best to accommodate any requests. Please contact us at

Website accessibility

CRASSH is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

This website strives to achieve accessibility standards set out by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0).

The guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web become more usable for all people.

The CRASSH website is designed to display correctly using current (and future) browsers being created using standards compliant HTML mark-up and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).


Whilst CRASSH complies with known accessibility and usability guidelines it is not always possible to do so to the letter of each checkpoint. In light of this, we are continually developing solutions that conform to the spirit of each checkpoint, bringing together a high standard of practicality throughout the website.
