Requesting a new website

Requesting a department or administrative website

Placing a request for a new website is Step 1 in the New Site Process (read more about it).

When you request a website let us know:

  • what name you would like for your site
  • whether you are replacing an existing Drupal 6 site
  • a list of people who should have editing access to the site

You may be contacted requesting further information about how your site will fit into the overall University organization of websites.
The University reserves the right to decline website requests.

Requesting a personal website

Web content related to:

  • labs and clinics
  • research
  • faculty bios / publication lists
  • conferences and workshops

is usually posted as pages within the department website.

There is often no need to create an entirely separate website for this information.
And, by making use of the department website you have the help of the department site editors.

If you require a completely separate website, set up for your own use, we create all personal websites in the form: uwindsor.ca/people/yourUWinID 

Website responsibility

Website owners and editors are responsible for building and maintaining their own websites.
The University does not employ website builders.

All University websites must remain in compliance with the IT Services Acceptable Use policy (ITS-11-01).

All University websites must remain in compliance with applicable legislation including the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

Websites created in the University system use Drupal 7 and have required templates.

A site will only be approved to go live if you have a trained editor in place to maintain the site. Review the Website Editing Policy.
