University web presence doubles

The University’s new website at is now live and on-line, running alongside a new internally focused site, Campusweb, at

The corporate site is aimed primarily at external audiences, such as prospective students and staff, business and industry partners, investors and collaborators, and will serve as a key marketing tool. Campusweb – which many will already have set as their home page – should act as the main information source for current staff and students.

The website is the culmination of an effort by many groups and individuals mainly from the press, publications and projects offices, the departmental support unit and ISS.

Corporate website editor Vanessa Bridge said: "We have received many comments from staff and students, praising the new ‘professional’ design, and offering constructive criticism. A website for a large institution such as the University needs to incorporate and make easily available a huge amount of detailed information; the work to maintain and update this will be ongoing."

Pro-Vice Chancellor for Communications and IT Professor David Hogg said: "The internet is a dynamic medium, and we now have a site upon which we can build, to create a web presence which truly reflects Leeds’ position as a top UK university."

Comments on the new site can be sent to webproject@
