Cornell Engineering, Cornell Tech and Computing and Information Science now offers its faculty, student researchers and student groups edublogs web hosting. We offer several mobile friendly WordPress templates to build a site and maintain it.
Log in with your NetID. After you begin a new site, choose a theme (search for “Cornell Recommended, Cornell Tested”). These WordPress sites are for users with limited knowledge of the web, looking for a simpler way to publish content. The sites are hosted by CampusPress and offer a limited number of plugins.
This is a free hosting option provided by the college units. If you are looking to set up a faculty research site we can help get you started.
If these WordPress sites are too limited, we have further hosting options available.
Cornell requires all new sites to be accessible. Begin your new site by choosing one of the “Cornell Recommended, Cornell Tested” themes. We are currently working on adding more accessible themes to this list. More specific information on how to create accessible websites.
Branding requirements are coming soon. Cornell will require all new sites to have the required branding on every site with cornell.edu in the URL (e.g., lab.engineering.cornell.edu). You can easily add the required branding to the footer widgets at that time.
