Accessibility for Everyone

NYU strives to provide full access to all of its services and educational programs to all members of the community. This website provides some general guidelines for those tasked with creating content that is accessible to all.

If you are a faculty or staff member with accessibility concerns or questions please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO). The OEO is NYU's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator, serving as a resource regarding reasonable accommodations in the workplace. If you are a student and need assistance with accessibility services, please contact the Henry and Lucy Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD). The CSD determines qualified disability status and assists students in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) provides an in-depth guide to web content accessibility, and those tasked with developing web content are encouraged to review its best practices. In addition, The National Center on Disability and Access to Education (NCDAE) provides helpful information when referencing creating content for accessibility purposes.
