Top-level Websites

Static Website

All top-level websites of colleges and schools, academic departments, research centres, and administrative and academic support units must adopt the Static Web Template.

Website managed by Web Content Management (WCM) platform

Websites requiring WCM must be built upon Drupal 8. CityU has been building a common template for top-level websites in Drupal. The current design is consistent with the static web template and is subject to continuous enhancement. You may visit our Web Template in WCM for a working sample.
