Drupal Software at UCSF
How to Request Access
Drupal is commonly used in the education industry as software for websites and complex digital content management systems (CMS). Drupal websites are prominent at University of California campuses. At UCSF, we offer several Drupal-related services to better serve the university community and improve UCSF’s online presence. Drupal services include website hosting and University website templates.
Website templates for UCSF using Drupal software
Drupal software is the foundation for the UCSF Site Builder platform, and includes prebuilt website templates for free UCSF use. Drupal also is the foundation for the Echo portal project.
The IT Web Services team maintains these sets of Drupal web features and aligns them with University standards for branding, accessibility, security, and more. Site Builder templates are relatively easy to set up and maintain. Learn more about UCSF Site Builder.
