Web Account Policies
Rights of the Department of Student Activities
The University of Connecticut provides student organizations with the opportunity to create their own websites. As a service to organizations, the University’s Department of Student Activities will make public the web address of a registered student organization provided that the organization is in good standing. However, the University is not responsible for the management or content of student organization web pages. The Department of Student Activities Involvement Office has the right to revoke an organization’s access to its web account if the organization fails to adhere to web account and/or other student organization policies and procedures contained or referred to in Blueprints: A manual for student organizations. In addition, The University reserves the right to terminate links to and/or publicizing student organization web pages, without advanced notice, for any reason.
Web Account Request Process
To request an account for your organization please complete the form below.
After the office receives the request via online form, the student organization will receive a UserID and Password. A temporary site will be created with a short name URL, indicating their club and that they are an RSO (i.e. http://ABCclubWP.rso.uconn.edu). If a group would like to request the “ABCclub” part of the URL, they may do so, but not all requests may be able to be met.
When groups decide their site is ready to go live, email the Involvement Office at dsaSOS@uconn.edu to have their site set to a Live status, removing the “WP” and making the page public.
The student organization is then responsible for the design and maintenance of their website. Questions that pertain to requesting a Student Organization Web Account can be directed to the Involvement Office (860) 486-6588.
