Getting to the Disability Resource Centre

  • The DRC is on the ground floor of the Old Arts School in the New Student Services Centre, which is situated adjacent to the David Attenborough Building on the New Museums Site. Enter the site from Pembroke Street (until further notice), head straight up with the Department of Zoology on your left and the Cockcroft Building on your right and continue with the David Attenborough building on your left and cycle parking on your right and the Student Services Centre is in front.  Enter through glass doors to the right of the building and report to main reception.
  • The DRC is approx. 0.2 miles from the city centre on the New Museums Site and there are numerous bus stops on nearby Emmanuel Street and St Andrews Street and the Universal Bus can be taken to Trumpington Street and then it is around a 10 minute walk to the DRC.
  • The DRC is approx. 1.2 miles from Cambridge train station, with taxis and frequent bus services to the city centre.
  • Guide dogs, hearing dogs, and dogs for disabled attendees are welcome.


The closest Universal bus stop to the DRC can be found on Trumpington Street.


Parking is severely limited on the New Museums Site. If you are a Blue Badge holder visiting the DRC and require a parking space, please contact us to discuss parking options. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee parking as there are so few spaces. The nearest public car park is the Grand Arcade car park, off Pembroke Street.  There are disabled parking bays on Peas Hill which connects to Bene't Street.
