EcoGo Accessibility Statement

The EcoGo mobile application and website have been developed by BetterPoints. As EcoGo is an application which contains third party content this means that some aspects of the website and application accessibility are outside of the University of Sussex’s control.

EcoGo is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, improvements are needed including improving colour contrast and some navigational issues. The University of Sussex is committed to making the EcoGo website and mobile app fully accessible and are actively working to address these issues. The University is working with BetterPoints to improve accessibility in the new version of their app, which is currently in development.

If you have any trouble using or accessing parts of EcoGo, please contact us here: web-accessibility@sussex.ac.uk

The University of Sussex’s full accessibility statement can be found here.

Our Sussex campus is unique for its location within a National Park, giving it amazing surroundings that are perfect for a walk or run. The campus is also located close to Brighton, with footpaths all the way from the centre of the city up to the campus. There are also footpaths across our campus, meaning you can easily walk between different buildings.

You can also collect points and get rewards by taking part in our EcoGo Challenge.
