How do I set up a webpage for my research project/group? 

There are two options available:

  1. If you would like a webpage in t4, like this research project, please email Christelle with the relevant information and images.
  2. If you would like a Wordpress site please submit an ivanti call (using the 'Research Computing Website Hosting' tile) to have one setup up and have it linked to the University website - a new domain name will be created.

Even if your project has an external website/blog/other, we want to include at least a paragraph and a link on the School website, so please email Christelle with details!

You may find guidance on creating web content from the Communications Office which has created a series of tools and guidance that can help you to:

  • understand how web users read online
  • streamline your pages so that users can find what they need
  • create copy that users will want to read
  • make sure that your pages are consistent with the University’s brand and tone of voice.

Must include

  • Headline
  • Summary - one or two sentences
  • Full story or event details - between one and five paragraphs
