Organizational Websites

Organizational websites must comply with the Organizational Websites, Domain Name policy as well as all requirements of the UF Web Standards & Guidelines. Organizational websites should be reviewed annually for compliance by the site owner or technical contact. Domain information can be found at the Information Communications and Technology network services website. This is done in hopes of creating a strong and unified identity, provide a good experience for visitors and establish consistency for our decentralized university web presence.

Personal Websites

UF provides hosting space for personal websites for faculty, staff, and students, these personal websites are not official university sites. However, to ensure a safe and consistent hosting environment, these websites are expected to comply with all General and Security requirements. Compliance with the Electronic Information Technology Accessibility is required. Personal websites must not give the impression that they are representing, giving opinions or otherwise making statements on behalf of the university or any unit of the university unless appropriately authorized (explicitly or implicitly) to do so. Personal websites may not contain UF Web elements or other symbols of the university unless they pertain specifically to a university function. Refer to the design & branding standards for more information.
