Access information for our audiences

Wheelchair Access

Both the Union and Guild Theatres are wheelchair accessible, with seats reserved for wheelchair patrons. Please contact the event organiser or student theatre group to ensure you are booked into these reserved seats.
There is a wheelchair lifter in the Union Theatre, and our Casual Theatre Worker at the event will be able to assist you with the lifter.
There are building lifts available to get to the Guild Theatre on Level 1 of Union House.

Accessible Toilets

There are accessible toilets available in Union House – one on the ground floor (between the Union Theatre and UMSU Info Desk), and one on Level 1 opposite the lifts.

Drop-offs and Accessible Parking

You can drop off audience members and performers via Tin Alley, Gate 1 on Swanston Street. Drive down Tin Alley and Union House is halfway down on the left.

There are four accessible parking space available outside Union House.

We recommend that you plan to make a drop off in case both accessible parks are in use. If you park in an accessible park you need to purchase a ticket from the machine and display that alongside your disabled parking permit.
