The main entrance to Kellogg is located between the two large houses, there is a link building and the entrance is located about halfway.  Simply follow the pathway(s) and look out for a large blue door under a small awning.

To get here from the accessible car parking space there is a pathway leading to the main entrance (between the two larger buildings).

The door is powered and is operated by a push button or an access card out of hours. Just watch out as there is a small metal lip that is quite subtle that some wheelchair users might bump into!

Once you are inside there is level access to most areas of the main college.

There is a reception desk just as you enter the main college building on the right hand side.  The counter top is quite high for those who use a wheelchair but the staff are very friendly and there is a lowered section just around the corner should you need to sign in or require a writing surface.

Accessible toilets

There are 2 accessible toilets located on the main site. (In addition there are 2 accessible toilets in The College Hub - see page 2 for further information about The Hub).

There is one in the Geoffrey Thomas Building.  If heading from reception turn right and look to your right, you will see the platform lift, once out of the lift, turn right down the corridor, the toilet is located immediately on the right hand side.

The second accessible toilet is located adjacent the college offices.  Whilst it is further away from reception, if you are in hurry it might be quicker to use this as the lift isn’t involved!  Simply turn left and go up the ramped corridor ahead of you.  Follow the corridor round, you will come across a small seating area as you are about to enter the college offices, the toilet in located on the left handside. This toilet also has baby changing facilities.

There is (of course!) an additional private accessible toilet in the accessible accommodation.

The platform lift is located just behind reception en route to the bar and dining spaces. This carries users from the ground floor of the main college building to the ground floor of Geoffrey Thomas Building- which contains the library, the College Lounge, a toilet block and some additional offices.

As it is a platform lift, the user must keep the buttons pressed during travel, the doors are not automated so you will hear a click and simply push them open, they are very light!

There are no other lifts on site but thankfully all the areas you need to access publically are located on the ground floor.

The library is located on the ground floor of the Geoffrey Thomas Building and can be reached via the platform lift and also via a ramp (pending prior arrangement).

Simply take the platform lift from the lobby area and pass through a set of doors (not powered) the main library room is located on the left hand side coming off the large stair lobby.

In the main reading room are plenty of desks and open plan work space with a choice of desk or armchairs depending on your preferences.

There are accessible computers located on the desks within the library.  The book shelves are easily accessible as they run along the walls but they are quite high so you may need to ask for assistance.

There is a (powered) height adjustable desk; this has a large monitor which people with a visual impairment may find useful. 

Across the hall way is second reading room with sofas and more bookshelves, these are bit harder to access as the sofas sit in front of them, not to worry though as the librarian will be more than willing help.

The librarian can be contacted via email  samantha.truman@kellogg.ox.ac.uk

The Dining Hall is located in main building and is level access throughout.   There is plenty of space to get between tables although some wheelchair users might find the tables a bit low.  The end sections don’t have a frame underneath and represent the best spot to dine if you cannot fit underneath due to your wheelchair dimensions.

When weather permits the Dining Hall has large doors that open out onto the terrace and the gardens beyond.

The College Lounge is located up one flight of stairs from the reception lobby in front of the college bar, there is a platform lift to reach the ground floor of the Geoffrey Thomas Building where the room is located.

The room is immediately on your left as you come down the corridor, pass through the door (not powered) and there is a large social space with sofas and bean bags.  There is a large rug that takes up a most of the floor, it’s quite thick so some wheelchair users may find it a bit challenging.

Just outside the College Bar and Dining Hall is a glazed lobby area overlooking the gardens, it has a mix of high bar style and low seating.  It’s level access from there into the College Bar, Dining Hall and onto the gardens.

Throughout the college main building are clusters of chairs for those that require a quiet space or simply a rest.

The College Hub is an informal space open to all college members and is home to the Common Room and Café. College members are able to access The Hub 24 hours a day. The café is open Monday to Friday 08:00 – 17:00, and Saturday to Sunday 08:00 – 16.00. Please click here for further details about The College Hub. 

The Hub is a stand-alone building in the grounds of the College. At present getting to The Hub can be tricky for some people as the route involves going over some uneven ground and loose gravel. The College will be constructing a fully accessible route to The Hub in the near future. 

The main entrance is via a powered door - during café opening hours the door can be opened using a push button. Outside café opening hours the door can be opening using a College access card. Please note that there is a small metal lip at the entrance to the building. The Hub is a single storey building and has level access throughout. There is plenty of space in the main common room/cafe area; all furniture is freestanding and can be moved as needed. The cafe counter has leg space underneath for wheelchair users. 

There are two gender neutral fully accessible toilets. 

There is a level outside eating area which can be accessed from the main common room/cafe area; the doors are not powered. There is also a small metal lip at each of the doorways. This area can also be accessed by following the building round from the main entrance.

The gardens straddle the whole site. It is essentially a series of interconnected gardens each associated with one of the former townhouses.  They are mostly laid to lawn but there are paving slabs and a terrace adjacent to the dining room.  Users will find occasional benches too.

To access the gardens directly from the main college there are doors leading off the glass foyer/lobby area in front of the dining hall and college bar- all of which are level access.

The pathways in the garden are a mix of paving slabs in the lawn, informal or lightly laid gravel. Whilst they aren’t technically accessible, if the weather is good and the wheelchair user is used to lawns and outdoors they are manageable.  Otherwise a wheelchair user should stick to the terrace and use the roads to navigate to the student housing blocks.
