These HTML templates were created to assist Web publishers professionally and consistently represent The University of Texas at Austin on the Web. Using these templates ensures that websites have the most current look and feel for the university. By incorporating the include files, webmasters will not have to update their sites each time there are design changes. Their websites will automatically incorporate new releases.
The majority of the CSS styles associated with the templates are specific to the header and footer. There are a few basic content styles such as headers and link tags. Future template releases will include additional styles for the content section of the pages. For color and design recommendations, please refer to the Web Guidelines or to the core pages themselves.
Core University Templates
These templates reflect the look and feel of the university's core pages and may be used for websites that have an institutional scope beyond a single office. The templates are consistent with the university's home page, www.utexas.edu, but are different enough to keep the home page distinct.
All websites that use these university templates must incorporate the standard footer and one of three options for the header. Each header option includes the university wordmark but three other elements differ between the versions. These elements are:
- Primary Navigation: About UT, Academics, Athletics, Campus Life, Community Engagement and Research
- Utility Navigation: Colleges & Schools, Directory, Offices, Maps, Calendars, Libraries, Mobile, UT Direct
- Search: the campus-wide search using the utexas.edu Google Custom Search Engine
Visit Using the Templates (requires UT EID) for instructions on how to use these templates.
Option I: Full Header with Primary Navigation, Utility Navigation and Search
This design is for departments and organizations that have an institutional scope beyond a single office, such as administrative offices or units that serve the entire campus. If you have any questions about when to use the full header, please contact University Communications.
Option II: Header with Utility Navigation and Search
This design is for departments and organizations that want to adopt the current look and feel but do not have a broad institutional scope and do not need to include the primary navigation.
Option III: Header with Utility Navigation
This design is for departments and organizations that want to adopt the current look and feel but do not have a broad institutional scope and do not need to include the primary navigation. It does not have the university-wide search, which may be useful for departments that choose to include their own site-search prominently in the body of their pages and do not want confusion with a campus-wide search utility.
All templates include the footer:
