At the end of June we made our 300th Falcon site live, with a further 70 sites in development.


Falcon websites

The Falcon content management system (CMS) offers a straightforward, self-service way of building a website using the University templates. UIS takes care of the hosting and deployment of your Falcon website, leaving you free to concentrate on the content.

Benefits of switching to Falcon

  • Low cost, reliable web hosting
  • Quick set-up
  • Lends credibility by using the widely-recognised University template
  • Automatic CMS upgrades
  • Built-in Raven authentication
  • Content editors don't need to be web developers
  • Free, regular, local training – for absolute beginners to advanced Falcon users
  • Falcon technical support – by email or in person
  • Falcon website migration service (paid for)

Cost-effective websites

Sites pay a modest annual charge of £100 including the hosting and managed CMS service, payable only once the site is made live.

If staff time is available we offer – at very reasonable rates – a service populating new sites and migrating content from existing websites.

Who's using it?

Some of the recent sites to go live have included:

As well as being ideal for departmental and institutional sites, Falcon is especially convenient for cross-departmental or cross-institutional sites, for dedicated conference and event websites, and sites for research groups.
