Accessibility at WordCamp London 2016

Accessibility is a priority in the WordPress Community, and this year WordCamp London 2016 is proud to be fully accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, wheelchair users, parents and lactating women.

We’ve added a few additional facilities to ensure WordCamp London remains accessible to everyone for the duration of the event. If you’d like more information regarding any of the below, please get in touch with us at

Hearing Loops

All rooms holding sessions and presentations are fitted with audio induction loops. This includes the Henry Thomas Room, Great Hall and GC1–08 (in the Graduate Centre).

Speech to Text Reporters (STTRs)

We’ll be providing live captions for every presentation throughout the event.

Wheelchair Access

The entire University is accessible by wheelchair, apart from the back room in The Rocket. This is where tea and coffee is being served throughout Saturday 9th April and Sunday 10th April, and there will be volunteers available to provide tea and coffee to wheelchair users unable to reach this area.

We sincerely apologise for this, and if you’d like more information or would like us to arrange someone to help you on the day do not hesitate to get in touch at

The stages in the Henry Thomas Room, Great Hall and GC1–08 are also inaccessible to wheelchair users.

Accessible bathrooms are located in The Rocket and the Graduate Centre.
