The University of Auckland offers a free website to academic or professional staff members who can provide evidence that the site will contribute value towards the University.
Our free service does not include visual design or customisation of the site – that is additional chargeable work.
When we talk about site set up for free – that is fairly basic and would need the end user to modify the theme etc. The reason we offer that is because the University has a number of advanced users who are happy doing their own site design and minor development.
Typically people engage the Digital Experience team to do some simple design work (charged at these rates) and then through various means – own time, hire a staff member, intern or similar to populate and manage the ongoing site with their desired content.
