Accessibility means full access and full usage and participation in all areas of life.

The following definition of accessibility is given in § 4 of the German Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz (Act on Equal Opportunities for People with Disabilities):

“In order to be accessible, buildings and other facilities, means of transportation, technical objects of daily use, information processing systems, acoustic and visual sources of information and communication devices and other shaped areas of life need to be detectable, accessible and usable by people with disabilities in the common manner, without particular difficulties and can be accessed independently. Disability-related means may be used.“

TU Clausthal increases its attractiveness by ensuring equal opportunities to all of its members by further reducing restricted access to its buildings and through web presence.
