Accessibility on the Woodward Halls main website

This statement relates only to web pages with addresses beginning:, and not to other Imperial College web pages.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

How accessible this website is

Currently, some links to different parts of the website might not have text descriptions, or might have text with low contrast against background colour. However, most of the website can be navigated by scrolling down rather than using the links. We are still learning how to ensure compatibility with accessibility software, so if you find a part of the website that is incompatible with the accessibility software you are using, please let us know via the email address provided below.

What we do about known issues

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.
