Getting Started

UChicago Sites are designed to be easy to update and manage, and to take advantage of best practices in web design. With your new Template Site, you will be able to:

  • use a web browser to update your site anywhere, anytime
  • upload images and include YouTube and Vimeo videos
  • display events from your University calendar
  • create unlimited user accounts and assign roles with different permissions
  • publish news articles and have them automatically show up on your homepage and in your site's RSS feed
  • tag your news articles to make it easier to find what you're looking for

Web Services will do the heavy lifting on the back-end. We will ensure that your content management system is up-to-date and we will be releasing new features and enhancements on a regular basis.

Please take a minute to read the Quick Start Guide, which will provide instructions for creating and editing content, or visit for complete instructions for building your site.
