Logos on University websites should follow the official logo system. When you work with BU Interactive Design or IS&T, a logo will be set up for you that conforms to the University’s brand guidelines and naming conventions.
Getting a BU Website
The University uses WordPress, and all websites are hosted at IS&T’s data centers. There are three ways to get a website at Boston University:
- Get a theme design by IS&T.
- Have Marketing & Communications design a website for you. Please understand that a beautiful website doesn’t happen overnight. Get in touch and we’ll take you through the process and timing.
- Design your own website. However, please note that, while BU uses WordPress (a common platform for websites), it is a proprietary version, which we maintain and update as needed. WordPress at BU is a shared system running more than 900 websites, so it must always be stable, fast, and virus-free. That’s why it’s closed to outside themes. For more information on themes, please visit IS&T’s website.
