NYU.edu uses the standards and guidelines in the University Identity and Style Guide as the platform for the design and management of NYU.edu.  We recommend that anyone building or designing websites for NYU.edu familiarize themselves with these styles and guidelines as well as the information and best practices included here.

The 2016 Redesign

In 2016, a new design was launched for the main New York University website. An ongoing effort is being made to bring the entire University and its central administrative units into compliance with the new standards.

If you have questions concerning your website and the timeline for its scheduled completion, please e-mail digital-communications@nyu.edu.

NYU homepage redesign

Through rich, evocative content and clear intuitive navigation, the redesign of the NYU.edu homepage allows users to easily and quickly get to exactly the information they need.

NYU School websites

A school's website is designed to showcase its unique culture and personality, while at the same time highlighting a clear connection to New York University.

School websites include elements and styles found outside this guide, but recommendations made here are hopefully universal.

NYU.edu Basics

  • NYU.edu is designed to adapt its layout to any screen size. Paragraphs and images reflow and resize. At smaller screen sizes, a menu icon displays the more detailed site navigation.
  • Content on the page can continue indefinitely in length, but best practices recommend keeping this length to no more than three scrollable pages.

Digital Communications Group

The Digital Communications Group (DigiComm) oversees the visual identity and Content Management System for central administrative websites. It also offers design, development, and strategic communications services to NYU administrative units and faculty.
