Maynooth University has made every effort to ensure that the design of this website conforms to web standards for both usability and accessibility. Our aim is to provide an equivalence of access to the information on this website for all our users.
We have followed the W3C's WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) guidelines in the creation of this website and we have used the latest technologies available to structure the website. W3C is the governing authority on web development standards and practices.

By following guidelines set down by the W3C we are trying to make sure that all the information on our website is available to everybody: not just the text, but the information contained in the images and other media. Using these technologies also allows us to provide a website that loads faster, and displays in more devices. 

The Maynooth University web accessibility project is still on-going and we hope to provide an even better service to all our users in the future. If you have a problem accessing any information on the site, please contact us and we will endeavor to provide the information in an appropriate format.
