Faculty of Classics


The University of Cambridge has partnered with AccessAble to create a searchable guide for accessibility information for university sites; it can be found here.

This page contains accessibility guides for all of the university sites, and the Sidgwick Site specific accessibility guide can be found here.

There are five disabled parking spaces available on the Sidgwick Site; of these, three are on the Sidgwick Avenue side within the main carpark (entrance on Sidgwick Avenue). More information on disabled parking can be found here. For reference when consulting the above guide to the Sidgwick site, conference locations are all on the southern part of the site (near Sidgwick Avenue), in the Faculty of Classics, the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (marked ‘Oriental Studies’ on the guide), Lecture Block, Little Hall and Lady Mitchell Hall.
