Creating Web Pages for Faculty and Graduate Student Projects

NYU graduate students and faculty can create Web sites on NYU Web; Graduate Students to showcase their thesis projects and faculty to present their large-scale personal projects.

Once you've decided that you do want to create and maintain Web pages for your project, you must follow the steps below.

Apply for an i4 Internet Account

This is a special account which acts as a gateway to the NYU Web server. Please visit the ITS Webmaster Account page to review the application process.

Account Created

Once the application is completed, signed and turned in, your account will be created within a week, on average, following appropriate approval. Then you will be contacted to discuss your URL (address on NYU Web).

URL Naming Policy

The URL format for sites within the projects directory is:

http://www.nyu.edu/projects/profname
(where profname is the professor's last name)

or

http://www.nyu.edu/classes/projectname
(where projectname is a short name describing the project)

"Linking" Your Page

As for "linking" your page, as soon as you are contacted by the NYU Webteam regarding your URL, you are free to give out your address for others to see your page.
