Digital Accessibility services

The Digital Accessibility webpages provide information, and access to advice and resources, for all staff and students at UCL who have identified that they have a disability, or an ergonomic need, and require support with IT. They also aim to provide guidance to managers and academic staff, about the provisions they should make for disabled staff and students.

Digital Accessibility Hub

The Digital Accessibility Hub is a dedicated IT workroom that provides improved access for students with disabilities and long-term medical conditions. Contact the Digital Accessibility Hub

Students must book an induction via Student Support and Wellbeing before access to the Digital Accessibility Hub will be granted.  The induction will introduce you to assistive software specific to your needs, if necessary, and will also cover safety, such as fire evacuation procedures, as well as our rules, which you will be expected to adhere to while using the Digital Accessibility Hub.

UCL students and staff can contact the Student Support and Wellbeing team for further information and support available by registering our disabled students.

UCL staff can contact their departmental DSE assessor for workstation setup for their needs. Below is further information and guidance on how to get support.

UCL takes the accessibility of its online resources, documents, media and software very seriously.  The aim of this page is to provide resources and guidance on how best to work and study in accessible ways.  It links to guidance on tools to support remote working and study, on how to make your computer work best to meet your needs, and how to ensure that resources that you create yourself are accessible for others.

Whilst not legally required to do so, UCL strives to achieve Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA.

We are working to improve the accessibility of all of our websites and online platforms and welcome feedback on how accessible our websites are for you, so that we can keep improving them. If you have any problems or suggestions please email digitalaccessibility@ucl.ac.uk.
