Web Guide

The Humboldt State University website is an important source of public information about the University. As such, official University websites must adhere to specific style, accessibility, and content guidelines.

This guide covers the definition of "Official Website," requirements, colors, and fonts. In addition it gives some examples of image and type treatments that are used in our website platform, OpenHSU.

Official Websites

The term "Official Website" refers to any page used to deliver public information about University departments, units, clubs, associations, functions, programs, courses, or curricula. It does not refer to personal web pages of HSU students, faculty, or staff, unless the pages are used for a purpose described above.
