Universal Design Resources

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilation Act, accessibility and universal design principles are mandated for all University of California resources. Below you will find helpful resources that will assist you in developing electronic resources with accessibility and universal design in mind.

UC Irvine is committed to providing comparable access to all programs and services to people with disabilities. This includes access to electronic information and services. All official UC Irvine websites, applications, telecommunications, video and multimedia must meet the University of California Office of the President's web accessibility standards. These standards are based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Priority Level 2AA and Section 508. If this is not possible, reasonable accommodations will be made to provide these services or materials in an alternative format in a timely manner to ensure compliance with Federal laws.  The UC Irvine website is defined to include any website using the “uci.edu” address and/or is related to the University by development or added content of a UC Irvine employee.
