We are committed to making our website usable, regardless of your personal circumstances, location or technology arrangements.
Accessibility standards compliance
The WCAG document lists requirements for making web content accessible to a wide range of people. This includes people with disabilities, including:
- blindness and low vision
- deafness and hearing loss
- learning difficulties
- cognitive limitations
- limited movement
- speech difficulties.
Following the WCAG guidelines will also make our web content more usable to many other users, including older users.
It will also enable people to access web content using many different devices - including a wide variety of assistive technologies and mobile technologies.
We are dedicated to maintaining and improving on our current level level of compliance. We are committed to meeting the W3C's Level AA (double A) as per Australian Government accessibility requirements.
Student Accessibility Action Plan
We are committed to inclusive teaching, learning and service delivery for students with either a disability or health condition.
Assistive technologies & support
Support is available in a variety of ways.
We have assistive technologies that students and staff can use as well as support service for students.
Disability resources rooms

- track balls and mice
- software for screen reading and magnifying
- speech recognition software.

We are progressively developing accessible maps for our campuses pages on the site. Choose a campus page then use the map that applies to you.
Some of the features we are including are:
- text alternative maps for our campuses if you use a screen reader, screen magnifier, or if you simply cannot read maps
- visual aid map for people with issues that require them to see photos of places. They include photos and detailed descriptions of building entrances, lifts, toilets and other services.
