YaleSites provides two web publishing options: YaleSites Self-Service  and YaleSites Custom.

YaleSites Self-Service

This offering allows you to create a website with little technical or design expertise required. A template gets you started with a design based on Yale web guidelines and a set of “out-of-the-box” features and tools like a news listing, photo galleries, social media capabilities and built-in mobile optimization. view portfolio of sites

YaleSites Self-Service is ideal for:

  • creating a web presence for an academic or administrative department
  • smaller sites for projects, laboratory groups or research programs
  • creating sub-sites of larger existing department sites
  • departments and organizations with limited in-house technical expertise and/or budget

There are three designs to choose from with several color and style options that allow for additional customization.

YaleSites Custom

YaleSites Custom allows organizations the ability to deliver a completely customized site with a unique design and extended functionality beyond what YaleSites Templates offer. Building a custom YaleSite requires an advanced technical staff member/team or outside vendor. If you would like a custom site, your developers (in-house or outside vendor) will need to follow our step-by-step process, including signing the YaleSites Custom Agreement. view instructions

YaleSites Custom is ideal for:

  • sites that require a distinct design and/or complex layout
  • sites that require more robust functionality beyond what YaleSites Templates offer
  • departments and organizations with a technical staff member, or the budget to hire an outside vendor
