Venue Accessibility Information- LGBT+

The LGBT+ group aims to be inclusive to all members. We’ve put together this guide to make you aware of the accessibility information of the places we regularly go for meetings and socials. If you have any feedback or questions about this guide please email lgbt@bath.ac.uk!

Note: All venues except our weekly meeting room serve alcohol and require ID.

The location of this room is secret, please join our mailing list or email lgbt@bath.ac.uk and ask to be added to the secret Facebook group to find out the room.

Step free access: Yes, possibly via a lift.

Other: If you are nervous about coming to your first meeting or would like to meet someone first, email our co-chairs at lgbt@bath.ac.uk and we’d be happy to meet up with you before hand.
