We want you to be able to use the Goldsmiths App in your own way.
Primary page content
The Goldsmiths App (the App) is used by students, staff and people interested in studying at Goldsmiths to access information and services.
It is available online as webapp (at students.gold.ac.uk) and for Android and iOS devices. See how to access the Goldsmiths App.
Using the App
The App is provided by ExLibris on behalf of Goldsmiths, University of London. We want as many people as possible to be able to use it. For example, on a desktop browser you should be able to:
- Zoom in up to 300% on a desktop without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
On an iOS and Android device, you should be able to access it using the accessibility tools and functionality on your device.
The App links to other web-based systems that are not covered by this Accessibility Statement. It also links to the www.gold.ac.uk website for information pages, these are covered by gold.ac.uk's Accessibility Statement.
