The Newcastle University website was designed to be viewed on standard desktop monitors. Yet in 2014 25% of global web traffic comes from mobile devices. Our website analytics show that visits to our site reflect this trend, with 28% of traffic coming from mobile devices.
The Go Mobile programme is an exciting mission to give our users what they need – high quality web content that is mobile responsive.
What we’re doing
We’re making a commitment to improve our web content.
We’re making our sites responsive. Users of tablets, mobiles and desktops see the same website optimised for viewing on their screen.
We’re improving our Content Management System. We have over 20,000 external facing web pages and the systems used to edit and publish them are out of date. We’re moving all our sites into the Terminal 4 Content Management System (T4).
The Corporate Web Development team are leading this project with the support of the IT Service.
Programme updates on our blog
We’ll be using this blog to provide updates. This could be anything from a key project milestone to a ‘show and tell’ type post on a new responsive feature or design component.
Expect to see blood, sweat, tears and plenty of photos of post it notes as we plan this huge programme of work.

We’ll also be adding project updates to our website (University Login required).
