Digital Accessibility Services

UCL takes the accessibility of its online resources, documents, media and software very seriously. The aim of these pages is to provide resources and guidance on how best to work and study in accessible ways, and on how to ensure that resources that you create yourself are accessible for others.

Explore digital accessibility support

Our objective is to remove or alleviate, as much as possible through reasonable adjustments, any of the barriers to digital accessibility that might be encountered by anyone, student or staff, with a disability. Find out more about defining disabilities and reasonable adjustments.

Online resources and guidance

Our 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 Hubs

In-person guidance and support is available through the the Digital Accessibility Hubs - dedicated IT workrooms that provide improved access for students with disabilities and long-term medical conditions. Find out more about the Hubs
