NYU Web Guide

New York University's web presence is one of the critical ways we present ourselves to the world, and it is a crucial tool for communicating with our audiences, both internal and external.

The web has emerged as a medium with a decentralized nature. For the most part, this is one of its great strengths, bringing creativity, diversity, and energy to users. For institutions like NYU, it is also a challenge: how to respect that fundamental character while at the same time maintaining a web presence that reinforces the University's identity.

As NYU competes for the best students, faculty, and staff across the globe, it has become increasingly important to express one clear and consistent visual identity. Consistent use of the University's visual identity adds to each unit's value while reinforcing the collective value of the institution.

We offer, as you build your web presence at NYU, this guide to services and resources.
