2.     PHYSICAL ACCESSIBILITY TO UNIVERSITY FACILITIES

Regulation at state level reviewed by MobiAbility team Adapted residence halls reported by universities
Physical accessibility was not specifically analysed at the higher education level regulation because it is regulated by more general statutes. A report of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights in 2015 claimed that 23 out 28 EU Member States have mandatory accessibility standards for the construction and alteration of national and local authority buildings (8 states only requires the partial application of accessibility standards under some conditions; see https://fra.europa.eu/en/publication/2014/indicators-right-political-participation-people-disabilities/building-standards) At state level At region level University level

Notes:

(7) Facilities guarantee a non-discriminatory, independent and safe use, subject to the applicable law and development regulations in order to enforce equal opportunities and universal accessibility. Furthermore, they are eligible for reasonable adjustments, through the necessary and adequate modifications and adaptations, as long as they are not very expensive. If it is not possible to guarantee some of the accessibility conditions established by law, alternative solutions shall be put into place in order to guarantee the highest level of fulfilment of such conditions. Self-protection plans and emergency and evacuation plans guarantee their adequacy to the needs of people with reduced mobility or any disability and learning difficulties. Legislation requiring an accessible lift is fulfilled. Its design allows for independent access and use at least from the entry hall of the house to the living area, bedroom, kitchen and an area for personal hygiene, storage rooms, car parks and communal areas, as set forth in the relevant regulations. They should be accessible for people with disabilities and learning difficulties accompanied by assistance dogs (…back).

(8) In terms of communication, the environment, service or equipment shall be considered accessible as long as there are all the necessary characteristics to ensure the exercise of the right to information by everyone, regardless of their physical, sensory or intellectual conditions. Buildings, premises, facilities and public spaces, as well as the goods and services of public use shall be provided using at least two different and simultaneous information systems, such as visual, sound and/or tactile systems, to facilitate accessibility, so that it can be easily perceived by people with hearing and/or visual and intellectual disabilities and learning difficulties. Special attention shall be paid to the signage of those areas or elements that may pose serious risks, taking into account the uses and characteristics of the environment, buildings, premises and facilities. Self-protection plans and emergency and evacuation plans shall include the procedures for warning and supporting people with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities and learning difficulties. Information and signage shall be updated and in a good state of conservation. All adaptations, modifications and new services shall be appropriately indicated (…back).

(10) The transport system shall be accessible for everyone taking into account the different needs in terms of mobility, communication and access to information. Vehicles used to provide public transport services must have the technical conditions laid down in the relevant regulations. Seating preference shall be given to people with mobility difficulties. It shall be guaranteed that all the information concerning the conditions of transport, travel, bookings, online information and services accessibility is available in appropriate and accessible formats for people with disabilities and learning difficulties or with reduced mobility (…back).

(11) A minimum number of parking places is reserved according to the legislation in force. Such parking places shall fulfil the conditions established by law (…back).

(14) A person, from outside or inside the university (student or other) and provided by the university, who is in charge of helping, supporting and guiding students with disabilities throughout the different learning tasks (attendance to classes, tutoring, studying at the library, working in a group, etc.) (…back).

(15) Any product (including devices, equipment, instruments and software) specially manufactured or available on the market, used by or for persons with disabilities and intended to facilitate, protect, support, train, measure or replace functions/structures of the body, or prevent deficiencies and limitations in activities (…back).

(16) Resource to be used in the classroom with a multimedia computer that has an internet connection and a video projector. It is a technology system reproducing sounds and projecting images on a screen, and allows interaction through pressure or movement (…back).

(17) It is a white rectangular board used to draw with a marker (in different colours) and that is easily rubbed out. The main differences between whiteboards and blackboards are the colour of the board and the fact that you need chalk to write on the latter (white chalk) instead of markers. Some visually impaired students see better the information written with a marker (black on white) than the information written on blackboard using chalk (…back).

(18) Devices picking up the voice, audio or sound and sending it by means of magnetic signals directly to the user¿s hearing aid or implant, avoiding reverberation and other environmental noises that may make it difficult to hear (…back).
