Registration of Website Content Owner

All website content owners must register their websites with the TTU IT Division. Please contact IT TeamWeb for more information.

Content Management System

To serve Texas Tech University content owners, the IT Division provides support and training on a content management system (CMS) for web authoring. Our content management system allows authors to easily update the content on their web pages without needing in-depth web programming knowledge.

Texas Tech Global Template

The Texas Tech Global Template is a responsive, pre-styled website framework that follows the Texas Tech brand. This flexible framework is appropriate for different content types and simplifies the process of creating new sites and pages with a consistent look. The templates also address accessibility issues.

Only sites maintained using the university-approved CMS can use the templates implemented by the Office of Communications & Marketing and the TTU IT Division.

Editable/Customizable Template Components

Each template has several components available for customization. These areas include:

  • Primary content area
  • Area-specific site menu
  • Area-specific contact information
