Basically, as title. I am disabled and just wondering whether I would be able to go out when i'm at university.

Thanks for any help, i appreciate it.

Ermmm... well it depends on whether you mean stand up, as in standing up or sitting down, or stand up in the sense, of before you collapse from being too drunk.

I presume you mean the first one though in which case I wouldn't worry, there's always places for people to sit down, and not everyone will want to be on their feet all night anyway

Erm well depends where we go. Sometimes nearly the whole night is spend stood up. However, if there was a disabled person in our group who needed to sit down more often then we would just sit down more...

It depends where we go...if you mean a night out as in clubbing, then I've gone for about 9 hours standing up (damn 6 am closing times :teehee: ). That being said, it's not because I had to, but rather that, in my drunken wisdom, I decided to ignore my feet's cry for help.

I wouldn't worry about it though- there are facilities for sitting down pretty much everywhere, and personally, if anyone going out with us was disabled, I know I'd make sure we spent more time sitting down. It shouldn't be an impediment to you going out and having a good time at uni, that's for sure

Typical night out for me...

Sit down in the bar for pre-drinks - 3 hours.
Stand up/dance in clubs - 4 hours.
Piggyback from the club to the taxi rank (I know it's self-inflicted, but after 7 hours those heels are f***ing painful) - 30 mins
Sit in taxi - 20 mins

I'd say the time's 50/50 stood up or sitting down.

Well I think the longest time I've ever been out was for a sports social - 7pm til 3am.

7-9.30: sitting down at the bar
9.30-3am: dancing, sitting, queuing.

There are always options to sit, I think your main concern is business, sometimes it's impossible to move anywhere.

My husband has severe mobility problems (he can stand for less than 5 minutes at a time) and he goes out to nightclubs. Okay, rarely, but he does. He just sits down for most of the night and moshes sitting down lol.

We usually get to the club at half 11 ish and leave at half 2 - 3, so it's usually 3-4 hours.
