Back to About this site

The University of Cambridge is committed to making accessible for all users information and resources that are available via the web. We favour the principles of usability and universal design, which will be of benefit of all users. By following these principles and incorporating techniques to ensure information and resources are accessible with assistive technologies, separate resources for disabled users should not be required.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, or if you come across a page or resource that does not meet your access needs, please contact and let us know, ensuring you quote the URLs of the pages concerned. All pages on the web server aim to:

  • incorporate good navigation at three or four levels:
    • global navigation so that from any page you can search, access the University A-Z and get to the University home page
    • left-hand navigation to guide you through the current section of content
    • right-hand quicklinks to guide you to other related content

  • be valid at the level of XHTML Strict 1.0
  • attain suitable levels of WAI compliance
  • use structured semantic mark-up

2013 redesign

We completed a redesign of our website in 2013 which made our pages more accessible on mobile and tablet devices, and delivers a modern user experience.

This redesign was part of a wider initiative, dubbed Project Light, which marks a significant change in the way that websites are delivered by the University of Cambridge.

The site templates were designed by Head London. This website was then built by The Web Kitchen and evolved by 3ev, using both TYPO3 and WordPress content management systems.
