Google Sites

Google Sites is a simple to use system that can be a good fit for the following kinds of websites:

  • internally focused web content;
  • NetID restricted content;
  • and faculty or student websites.

We have complete step-by-step instructions on how to log in to your Google Sites account.

There are currently two versions of Google Sites: classic sites and new sites. The new site version was created to make it easier to edit and manage your website. However, the new sites do not currently have features such as commenting to pages, changing a site URL, or setting page-level or group permissions, which are available for classic sites. The Google Support article on Classic vs. New Sites explains more about the differences. 

Google Sites has a number of themes and templates to choose from, and also offers a fair degree of flexibility within them. Web Services has created a shared Google Sites template to closely resemble the look of the WordPress at Georgetown template, but you are welcome to explore different options within your template should you choose to build your website here, though you should always attempt to adhere to the Visual Identity guidelines.
