Web Development

The Online Communications team provides web development and design services on a fee-for-service basis, to the following campus groups:

  • Schools and colleges
  • Academic departments
  • Administrative units

Please note: Websites for individual faculty, faculty projects, student projects, student organizations, or those that are funded by grants or federal appropriation funds do not qualify for our services. Faculty should contact the Instructional Media Lab for assistance. Other web hosting options include UMass Blogs or Personal Websites.

Whether your project entails a brand-new website or a redesign of an existing site, we can provide a web development solution that will meet your needs. Whether we build your website for you or you hire a third party, we can help you move your project forward.

Our goal is to enable you to best communicate with your intended audience on the web or on mobile, tablet, or other devices. We make sure that UMass Amherst websites meet guidelines for university branding and meet industry and accessibility standards.

Online Communications can provide programming expertise by adding functionality, data integration, social media, web forms, and custom programming to your website. We also provide advice, consulting, and project management expertise when needed.
