Our user guides include demos, tutorials and tips to help you make the most of your website theme’s features.

WashU Sites are built in WordPress using a custom theme. In WordPress, a theme is like a template, setting a website’s layout, styles, functionality and other key features.

If you requested a website through sites.wustl.edu or one of the WashU marketing and communications offices (previously public affairs), your site is likely using the WashU Web Theme. If your site was built by an outside vendor, it may be using a different platform entirely.

Other websites

Prior to the consolidation of web platforms, various groups including marketing and communications, IT services, individual departments and outside vendors built websites for departments and offices at Washington University.

If you need help with one of these sites, please contact the group or vendor that built the site.
