About

Open Berkeley is a turnkey web platform solution for UC Berkeley campus websites.

The solution includes:

  • Hosting
  • Site spinup
  • Training
  • Site launch
  • Berkeley Brand design
  • Security and maintenance updates
  • Feature improvements
  • Ongoing support

Campus employees with no prior web experience can use Open Berkeley’s powerful toolset to easily build sophisticated websites, and customers can rely on Open Berkeley to provide critical solutions to ongoing Security, Accessibility, and Maintenance issues.

Site Builders do not need any prior experience with building websites or with Drupal. IST will handle all security updatesaccessibility considerations, and maintenance/support. Open Berkeley also provides the benefit of continuous improvement and new features, which are automatically rolled out to all sites on our platform.

We’ve also partnered with the Office of Communications & Public Affairs to incorporate the Berkeley brand guidelines into a ready-to-use theme for Open Berkeley sites.

We currently have over 100 campus websites on the Open Berkeley platform. Many of these sites were built by communications staff without any prior web experience.

The Open Berkeley platform is built and maintained by the Web Platform Services team in the IST - Architecture, Platforms, and Integration department.

If you have any questions about your Open Berkeley site, or if you have any/all general questions about the Open Berkeley platform, please email web-platform@berkeley.edu.
