Four years ago, we redesigned Carleton.ca and it has served us well by bringing in over 100,000 visitors each month.

However, four years is a long time in the digital world and we are happy to say that it’s time for an update.

When approaching the redesign, the Department of University Communications and the Web Services Department within ITS looked at research on user behavior and preferences, best practices, and trends in web design.

From a content perspective, the new home page aims to:

  • Showcase Carleton as a leading university
  • Attract new students
  • Provide a gateway for visitors to easily navigate to the information they need

From a design perspective, as with the previous design, the team worked to create a site that was:

  • Accessible
  • Mobile friendly
  • Reliable and fast

Want a sneak peak? Come to our home page reveal event on May 16th from 1-2 pm at 1301 Health Sciences.

The site is slated to go live in late June.  More information to come in the Top 5.
