I have a new website project in mind. Where can I get help?
University IT offers self-service and guided services for web publishing.
Stanford Sites is a free self-service platform for faculty, students, and staff building and managing websites for university work. Websites are hosted in a Drupal environment optimized for performance with a pre-selected set of themes and modules. The database, web servers, and Drupal application are managed by University IT (UIT), so your website meets the university’s security standards, is backed up nightly, and remains available 24/7.
Get started on Drupal
Here are tips to help you get started with the Stanford Sites platform:
- Claim a website at https://sites.stanford.edu. Opt for a personal or group site and follow the email instructions to log in.
- Review the “Getting Started on Sites” series for site-building tips.
- Check out in-person Drupal training opportunities and online classes.
- Send questions to UIT.
For those who prefer WordPress, UIT’s free self-service WordPress is another option. More details are available on the UIT website.
