Inclusive campus badges
To aid the smooth transition when returning to campus and to provide an accessible, inclusive environment for all, we’ve introduced 4 ‘inclusive campus badges’ which inform others of those who are exempt from certain measures or require additional support on campus.
The following badges below are available for you to pick up from our campus receptions, libraries and residences:
Exempt from face coverings
For those who are exempt from wearing a face-covering due to physical or mental illness, impairment, or disability. To find out more about who is exempt, please visit KCL Coronavirus: Face coverings.
Priority lift access
Please let someone wearing this badge into the lift before you. Some disabilities are invisible; we cannot assume someone’s ability to use the stairs based on their appearance.
I sign BSL
Someone wearing this badge can communicate with you through British Sign Language. They may also be unable to hear you, especially if you are wearing a face covering.
I’m a lip-reader
Someone who is wearing this badge may not be able to understand you if you are wearing a face covering. Find out more information on our Campus A-Z webpage.
Accessible campus guides
To help you plan your journey in advance, you can view our full range of Accessible campus guides on AccessAble; helpful access guides which highlight all of our accessible features across all our campuses.
