USC faculty, staff, and departments have several free and fee-based options for creating websites for themselves and for their schools and units.
Free Website Options
USC Google Sites
Faculty and staff can create free, template-based websites using Google Sites. These sites can either be public or can be limited to a specific set of users.
For more information on creating web pages using Google Sites, see itservices.usc.edu/googlesites.
Sites at USC
Sites at USC is a high-quality, self-service option for building, hosting, and maintaining public websites at no cost. For more information creating websites using Sites at USC, see itservices.usc.edu/sites.
School- and Unit-based Website Tools
USC schools and units may offer free website creation tools to their faculty and staff. To see what tools are available, please contact the local IT support for your school or unit.
Some schools and units have posted specific guidelines and tools for developing website content. See the links below for more information:
- Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences
- Viterbi School of Engineering
- Keck School of Medicine
Fee-based Website Options
There are many third-party web hosting and web design services that faculty, staff, schools, and units can use to help them create web pages.
Once these pages are created, users can request a USC website address (also known as a URL) for the website.
For information on creating a USC website address for a website designed and/or hosted by a third-party, see itservices.usc.edu/web/hosting/usc-urls.
