Status of compatibility with the requirements

This website is partially compatible with the Federal and State Disability Equality Acts (BGG & LGG), the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.


HM Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences has a very extensive web presence of at least several hundred web pages. The majority of the pages were published before 23 September 2018. However, due to the disproportionate burden under the Federal and State Equal Opportunities Acts, the website is not yet completely barrier-free. The technical implementation will be carried out successively.
