The Best Universities in Terms of Social Life and Accessibility 

For many, university means moving away from home for the first time - sometimes miles away from family - and making new friends in a brand new city. Starting university can be a daunting time for anyone, and we understand that prospective students with life-changing conditions, such as cerebral palsy, may face added pressure to ensure they receive the support they require, while being able to enjoy their time studying. 

We have put together a guide to the top ten best universities in terms of social life in the UK - with the help of University Compare and AccessAble. We looked at University Compare’s ranking of the best universities for sociability to see how each university held up in terms of accessibility, and created a list of the most social and disability-friendly campuses.

1. University of Leeds

Globally renowned for the quality of its teaching and research, the University of Leeds is committed to creating equality on campus, seeking to identify and remove barriers to building use. The university’s newest accommodation, Storm Jameson Court, has specially adapted rooms, facilities and services that have been thoughtfully designed to meet all requirements of the National Accessible Scheme (NAS) standard for people with mobility, visual and hearing impairments.

7. University of Sheffield 

The University of Sheffield's campus is made up of a varied mix of premises, from traditional 'red brick' Victorian buildings to contemporary structures. Accessibility is at the heart of all the university’s new building developments; however, ensuring that its older buildings are fully accessible is more of a challenge. The university is currently seeking out innovative ways of re-organising and re-developing older buildings to ensure they are fully accessible to all.

9. University of Glasgow

The fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world, the University of Glasgow sits in the top 1% of the world's universities. It is committed to promoting disability equality in all its activities and to providing an inclusive environment that fosters a positive experience for all staff, students and other members of the university community.

The university strives to make the campus accessible to all users, but recognises that some may encounter limitations around its main campus, due to its hilltop location. It, therefore, understands the importance of enabling access to accurate, practical information on the accessibility of its physical estate, so that those with disabilities are able to make informed choices before applying.
