Web Publishing Options

Depending on the type of site that you need, the University of Notre Dame offers several different ways to create and publish your content on the web.

Support Options

OIT Help Desk provides support for technical issues with NetFile (connecting and updating files) but cannot assist with website code or content updates.

Marketing Communications provides support for website design, development, and content at an hourly fee. Please contact MarComm for more information.

Additional Resources

Google Sites

Note: The OIT does not currently recommend this service for most users. Google offers a web publishing platform that all Notre Dame students, staff, faculty, and departments can use. Due to usability issues and limitations with storage space, this service may not meet the needs of most users. Please contact the OIT Help Desk if you have any questions about this service.
