The guide has been re-launched on the new Mosaic content management system. It is now more attractive and usable, making it far easier for users to find the information they need
3 October 2019
The old version contained a great deal of valuable information, but it was not always easy to access it, particularly for people doing so on mobile devices. The new site automatically resizes to fit a phone or tablet screen, so its content is always legible and attractive. Mosaic also adheres to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, so the site is easier for people with certain disabilities to use – for example, good visual contrast and compatibility with screen readers are designed to make using the site easier for people with visual impairments.
The guide provides detailed information about features relating to the accessibility of buildings, gardens and other facilities across the University estate – from the presence of stair lifts and wheelchair-accessible toilets to whether there are hearing support systems and on-site parking for Blue Badge holders.
The team continue to working hard to bring the content up to date, visiting places all over the University estate to confirm or correct the material that has already been published, and to add new buildings to the system.
