Google Sites

What Is It?

Google Sites offers template-based websites and content management systems for individual faculty, staff, and student pages as well as groups like departments, campus units, student and professional organizations and research groups. Users can visit UIC’s Google Sites page to create a site today. Google Sites is part of the Google Workspace core tools.

A valid UIC NetID and common password are required to authenticate to UIC Google Workspace. You must create your UIC Google account before you can use this solution.

Limitations on Site Content 

All site content must adhere to University policy. These include the Acceptable Use of Computational Resources Policy and other UIC Policies. It is the site owner’s responsibility to maintain and update site content. If you discover inappropriate or out-of-date content, contact the site owner directly to discuss the issue.

If you are an instructor or UIC service provider, please note you are legally prohibited from requiring use of non-accessible services. Refer to Are Google Workspace apps accessible? for more information.

Service is contingent upon a current relationship with UIC through class registration, employment, or other valid affiliation. Upon leaving UIC, a grace period is in effect for all services accessed with a UIC NetID and common password. At the end of the grace period, access to services (including email accounts and email forwarding) is terminated. We recommend that students, faculty and staff leaving UIC download or migrate their email, calendars and documents prior to the end of the grace period.
