Students with reduced mobility can apply for access to the underground parking. The entrance to the underground parking is on the left side of the building; it is secured by a barrier which can be opened by FHWS card. The lift is between the two wheelchair-accessible parking spaces. To get to it, a door equipped with a push-button to open is has to be passed. The lift carries you to Levels U1, 0, 1, 2, 3.
Road surface and flooring
The bus stop “Sanderheinrichsleitenweg” is equipped with a tactile guidance system (floor marking). The ramp from the bus stop towards the entrance is slightly sloping downwards to the right. Pavements are tarred and the forecourt is paved. Access to the building is barrier-free. The door to Building I has a threshold about 3 cm high. In the entrance area, in the hallways and lecture rooms, mainly rubber is laid. The steps are protected against slipping by steel edges, but do not have any marking or additional tactile features.
Access to the building
The forecourt can be reached via a ramp to the right side of the building. Both buildings can be entered by automatic doors which open after using a button. Building H is left, Building I is right.

Several staircases make it possible to move between floors. The underground parking garage is on Level U1. In Building H, seminar rooms and lecture rooms are on Levels 0 and 1. In Building I, seminar rooms and lecture rooms are on Levels 0, 1, 2, 3. All staircases are equipped with handrails, but do not offer Braille.

In Building I, the lift is right behind the entrance area on the right side. This lift moves to Levels U1, 0, 1, 2, 3. The lifts’ passage width is 90 cm; they are equipped with Braille and announce each level.
Passage between the buildings
On Level 0, Building H and I are connected. You can pass from one building to the other via a hallway. Passing on Level 1 from one to the other building is possible by using the exits/entrances. The forecourt is covered.
For orientation within FHWS buildings in Würzburg, a consistent system of room numbers is used. Numbers start with a letter designating the building. The following number designates the floor number or level. After that, the actual room number is given. Example: H.1.1 = Sanderheinrichsleitenweg 20. Level 1. Room 1. Room designation in FHWS buildings in Schweinfurt differs from that, because there numbers are used to designate buildings.
Mostly in the staircases, escape and rescue plans are positioned at 120cm height. They make an overview of parts of the building possible.
In Sanderheinrichsleitenweg 20, room marking is consistent. Room number and the room’s use is written directly on the door. Toilets are additionally signposted by floor markings. At seminar and lecture rooms, ongoing and upcoming courses are shown on rather small digital screens.
Information and ongoing courses
The Infoboard offers an overview of all ongoing courses by stating the lecturer, the room number and the course’s duration. This overview is shown on big, centrally located screens.
