Web coordination – SamWeb

Common web issues at Lund University are dealt with in SamWeb, a coordinating group set up by the head of the University administration. The aim of SamWeb is to bring about clearer collaboration and a shared goal for the web activities at Lund University. The group consists of representatives from the faculties, Corporate Communications, the library organisation and the University’s specialised centres.

University-wide web solution

Many of the University’s websites are located in a university-wide web solution in the Drupal publication tool. The web solution is co-financed and offered to all organisational units within Lund University.

The web solution includes:

  • an empty website, with basic functionality and designed according to Lund University design templates, ready to be filled with content.
  • training in the use of the Drupal tool.
  • support and user assistance.
  • a technical platform which is regularly updated to ensure operational and IT security, and continuously developed to offer an attractive long-term solution.
  • the opportunity to submit requests for further development of the tool.

If your organisation is interested in using the University-wide web solution, you can register an expression of interest in a website. You will then be contacted by Web Communications.

External university-wide websites

The external websites for all of Lund University – lu.se and its English equivalent lunduniversity.lu.se – are the most visited among the University’s websites, with potential students as their primary target group. Here you also find news, calendar and overall information about research, external engagement, innovation and more. Visitors are also directed to faculty and department websites as well as to the University’s research portal.

The content on lu.se and lunduniversity.lu.se is managed by page managers at different editorial offices. However, any employee may publish events themselves in the calendar on lu.se:
