York University – Ron Cooke Hub

The Hub is a £20million, 7000 sq ft 'melting pot' for engagement. Its design encourages discussion and interaction, bringing people together across disciplines and sectors, from within and outside the university, providing space for new, value-adding ideas and partnerships to blossom.


All venues are fully wheelchair accessible.

Guide and service dogs are most welcome at the conference. Drinking bowls for dogs will be provided at each break and at lunchtimes, in the vicinity of the coffee. There is an exercise and comfort area for guide and service dogs. The guide dog toilet is a small area of gravel surrounded on three sides by a wooden fence to offer some privacy. A sign on the fence reads 'Guide Dog Toilet'.

You may smoke in the campus grounds provided you are at least two metres away from any building.


There are seven designated accessible toilets within the Ron Cooke Hub. Two of which are located on the ground floor, two on the first floor, two on the second floor, and one on the fourth floor. These toilets are provided with all necessary features including security alarm and visual fire alarm.

One of the ground floor toilet facilities also provides accessible shower facilities.

Wheelchair accessible cubicles are also available in some of the general toilet facilities.
