Accessibility at the WU Library

Do you need a large font keyboard or a Braille printer? Are you looking for a quiet room where you can write an exam without distractions?

Making sure that all users can access our library’s literary resources is a top priority for us. This includes, for example, technical aids for people with (visual) impairments, which are available in the assistive technology room. Additionally, students can take exams there without distractions.

What features does the room have?

You will find state-of-the-art technology in the assistive technology room. For instance, you’ll find a PC equipped with a Braille display and a printer capable of embossing documents. Additionally, the screen reader offers a read-aloud feature and the ability to adjust text contrasts.

The study and work area has been thoughtfully designed to accommodate wheelchair users seamlessly. For example, the tables offer infinitely variable height adjustment. The room is designed in a manner that prevents viewing into it from the outside.

Where can I find the room?

The room is located in the Central Library on level 4, in room LC.4.026. If you are interested in using the room, please reach out to us at We’d also be happy to provide an introduction to using the technical equipment.

BeAble – write exams undisturbed
