Resources

Stay up-to-date on the latest recommendations and guidelines for web accessibility, as well as what Penn is doing to make campus comfortable for everyone who might visit.

Beyond Web Accessibility

Buildings and Grounds

PennAccess provides information on the accessible features of the buildings and campus grounds owned or leased by the University. Find access maps and descriptions of each building’s features, designated accessible entrances, elevator and accessible restroom information, and routes of travel and areas where barriers exist.

Transit and Parking

The Penn Access Transportation vehicle (PAT), operated by the Department of Transportation and Parking, is available to transport members of the University community with mobility and vision disabilities.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

University websites must meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA requirement.

Questions about what the law requires in specific situations, including accessibility issues, should be addressed to the Office of General Counsel at (215) 746-5200.

Upcoming Changes

WCAG 2.1 will become the University standard when it is released by the Department of Justice, presumably in December 2019.

Recommended Tools

Dinolytics is the recommended tool for ensuring compliance with federal accessibility standards. Please contact ISC Client Care to have your School, Center, or department provisioned for Dinolytics.
