Obstacle-free ETH

ETH Zurich is committed to obstacle-free access. Over the next few years, people with disabilities or special needs - whether students, teachers, researchers, employees or visitors - should have largely unrestricted access to ETH buildings and services. Particularly in the use of digital aids, ETH would also like to be a role model for other stakeholders. This includes raising employees' awareness of digital obstacle-free access. For example, the programme includes accessible teaching materials, accessible library media and accessible communication. In addition, the ETH app is to be expanded in a sub-project so that barrier-free orientation on the grounds and in the buildings of ETH Zurich is made possible.
