Note on accessibility
Universität Hamburg seeks to make its website, www.uni-hamburg.de, fully accessible to people with disabilities. This process is based on the Hamburg act on equal treatment for disabled persons (Hamburgisches Gesetz zur Gleichstellung behinderter Menschen, HmbGGbM) and the ordinance on barrier-free information technology (Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung, BITV 2.0).
The BITV-Test-Prüfverbund, an independent network of accessibility auditing organizations, is currently evaluating our web pages. Unfortunately, the audit process has not yet concluded. We will publish the results as soon as they become available to us.
This note was written on 21 September 2019.
If you notice any faults in the accessible design of www.uni-hamburg.de, contact the section Digital Communication and Design of Universität Hamburg:

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is establishing an ombudsperson’s office. The ombudsperson will receive information and complaints about existing barriers, play the role of an independent arbitration body, and work with those affected to develop accessibility solutions.
