BOARC occupies several floors of a Grade II listed building, therefore there are some significant barriers to access. There is currently no lift access to the first floor, roof or basements. Each floor is accessed via approximately 26 steps, 17cm in height. Some facilities are located on these floors, such as the library on the first floor, and workspace, wet room and broadcasting studio located in the basement.

The ground floor is fully wheelchair accessible, with widened doors, and space to manoeuvre a wheelchair. The accessible bedroom and accessible bathroom, plus workspaces, kitchens, movement room and project office are located on the ground floor.

Service animals are very welcome. (taken from BOARC website)
