Description

KU provides a number of options for campus units and individuals to establish a web presence for engaging and informing their respective constituencies.

Unit/Department Websites

All official KU units/departments can request a content management system (CMS) website account. Student organizations and individuals are not eligible for CMS accounts.

Class/Course Websites

Canvas is typically the best option for instructors to post and share curriculum information with students in specific courses. However, under some circumstances, instructors may want a publicly available website to support a course. Instructors can request a cPanel webserver solution for those use cases.

Research/Grant-funded Websites

KU research and grant-funded organizations can request a content management system (CMS) website account or a cPanel webserver. Visit the Research Websites page for more information.

Faculty Websites

KU faculty can request work-related website space on KU's cPanel webserver. Faculty also can create a personal website on people.ku.edu.

Student Organization Websites

Student organizations registered with the Student Involvement & Leadership Center are eligible to apply for web hosting space on Rock Chalk Central. Only the registered president of the organization can request or change the password to the Rock Chalk Central account.

Student Personal Websites

Students can create a personal website on people.ku.edu.
