Departmental web hosting

Departments at the University of Victoria can request web spaces where departmental administrators can add and maintain content. Web Services can assist relevant university offices and bodies in enforcing graphic and technical standards for UVic web sites, though it is not responsible for the content of unit web sites. All content should be handled by the department.
