How to get a UC San Diego Website
UC San Diego has multiple options available to help faculty, staff, and students create websites.
ITS Supported Options
Campus Content Management System (CMS)
ITS Workplace Technology Services (WTS) supports the campus CMS. They set up and manage the framework, provide training and answer questions about best content management practices. To attain a CMS site:
- You must be affiliated with an academic department or program or official ORU, or a School of Medicine site.
- The site must be permanent. One-time events, notices, and other temporary items should be placed on an existing website.
- Someone in your area must commit to owning and updating the website on a regular basis.
- Agree to use the standard campus-wide templates.
- Have a business systems account for accessing the CMS.
There are three options for CMS content:
- Blink website: Blink is the "intranet" for UC San Diego faculty and staff, even though it is public (not behind a login). It has 3.5 million visitors a year. If your information is for all or most employees, put it in Blink.
- TritonLink website: The official student website hosts department-managed content targeting students with more than 1 million unique visitors each year. https://students.ucsd.edu is a highly visible and popular site.
- Independent websites: If your information is for departments and centers that are not specifically student- or staff-centric, you may want an independent site.
