Visual Look and Feel-Templates and CMS - Carnegie Mellon University

Visual Look and Feel

All websites built in the CMS use the official university page templates. These templates dictate the overall design and layout of your web pages, and customizing these templates is not possible. When you use the CMS, your website will be built using the following pre-defined elements:

Page Layout

The general layout of all CMS sites is defined by the university templates and the page types available.


Various elements throughout the university templates are designed using official branding such as colors, wordmarks, logos, etc. Refer to the university's Web Guidelines to learn more about official university branding for websites.

Styling of Content

Content added to your site will be styled using pre-set definitions such as font size, font face, and font color. Set styles are available for headings and paragraph text.
