ACCESSIBILITY ON CAMPUS

We strive every day to improve accessibility on campus. Here’s everything you need to know about our facilities and how to get around them.

ACCESSIBILITY ON CAMPUS

To ensure that members of our community with disabilities can also benefit from and enjoy our facilities, each of our three campuses meets current local regulatory standards as a minimum, often going further, and is equipped with access ramps, accessible entrances, elevators, classrooms, bathrooms, as well as designated parking spots. 

Furthermore, all three campuses have tactile surfaces on the floor leading to the elevators and reception as well as displays in Braille, to assist people with low visual capacity.

COMMITMENT TO CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

In our commitment to continuous improvement, we are dedicated to enhancing the accessibility of our campuses. We are working closely with our partner, Ilunion, on a comprehensive accessibility project. At present, detailed studies have been carried out regarding the accessibility of the buildings, and based on these findings, different improvement actions will be carried out in various locations across our campuses.

Importantly, we will keep this initiative open-ended, ensuring that next year and beyond, we can include updates on the progress we make in our ongoing efforts to provide an even more inclusive environment for all members of our community

UNIQUE NEEDS

At IE we always consider the unique needs of each new student admitted and employee hired. Please note that while Spanish law prohibits institutions from asking individuals to disclose their disabilities, any student, professor, or staff member can request special services. The University can provide them or assist with their acquisition, as well as additional support, including personal assistants, interpreters, and outside referrals.

OUR CAMPUS

IE TOWER

The IE Tower in Madrid is an accessible campus and goes beyond compliance with local accessibility regulations.

MARIA DE MOLINA

Our María de Molina campus in Madrid is also in strict compliance with accessibility regulations.

It is worth noting that in the older areas of this campus, ongoing renovation projects are in progress. These projects aim to not only meet the current regulatory standards but also to surpass them in terms of accessibility and inclusivity.

SANTA CRUZ LA REAL

As our Segovia campus is a recognized historical world-heritage site, certain areas cannot be modified to meet modern accessibility standards. 

However, we are committed to ensuring that student spaces remain accessible and are subject to ongoing improvements

Apart from walking, biking, and ride sharing, the main way to get to each of our campus locations is by public transportation. You can consult the full list of accessible Madrid metro stations here. The urban buses in both Madrid and Segovia are equipped with mechanical ramps for wheelchairs.

A GUIDE TO GUIDE DOGS

If you see a community member with a guide dog on campus, there are some basic guidelines to follow to guarantee the comfort and safety of everyone involved.

INTERACTING WITH THE DOG

INTERACTING WITH THE DOG

If the dog is wearing a harness, this means it’s on duty, so petting, calling, or making eye contact should be avoided. If the dog is not wearing a harness, you may interact with the dog with the handler’s permission. 

It is essential to approach the animal in a quiet and calm manner. Do not give the dog food or water. It is the dog handler’s responsibility to control and care for the dog.
