Universities all have their own websites these days and some of them are not so good. In fact, a lot of them are not so good as Universities seem to have no creativity when it comes to design sometimes. However, there are a handful out there that are designed extremely well and look great so we thought we’d feature some of them. Here are the 10 best designed University websites.
The University of Kentucky is a bit of a strange site as it is just so blue, but there is something that works about it. It is very clear and easy to understand and gives an overall great impression of the University.
Oregon State University is a really well designed site in which minimalism has done its job. The site is not super colourful or anything like that, but it is easy to navigate and find what you are looking for which is number one priority.
The University of North Dakota has a really neat looking website that features a cool piece of design at the top that really fits in with the site. However, it would look better without that weird, gradient background.
#4 – New York University
Probably one of the most minimal University sites out there, the New York University site features just a slideshow of images and the color purple, but it looks great. It is easy to navigate and overall works well.
Here we have yet another very minimal website design from the University of Washington State. It is very white and basically, quite empty. This is quite refreshing as a lot of Universities go overboard with the design.
Salford is part of Manchester, UK and their website is pretty nice for a University. It is simple, clean and efficient which is all you want from a University website. They haven’t overdone the design at all.
The University of Alabama site is pretty standard in its design and looks quite a lot like a blog. However, it is definitely one of the best University sites out there just due to its simplicity.
#8 – University of Kansas
There is something that I like about the design of the University of Kansas website and I’m not quite sure what it is. The design at the top is pretty cool though….for a University.
This website is surprisingly nice in the way it is designed. It looks unique and also quite minimal whilst having a good selection of modern media including videos and whatnot. Good effort.
#10 – University of Wyoming
Ok, so this one is a little bit crazy but it is still good. The design is not quite as minimal as the others but it is still easy to navigate and easy on the eyes too.
