Google Analytics is a self-service tool that provides analytical data on content pages within and its subdomains.

Content pages hosted on NYU's legacy server previously used a statistics analysis program called Urchin that provides reports about who is visiting your website. Support for Urchin has been deprecated. If you need assistance with monitoring web usage of your content, please contact the Analytics Team.

Account Eligibility

Full-time faculty and staff with active accounts in NYU's web content management system (CMS), Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), are eligible for access to the shared NYU view in Google Analytics. To request access, please contact the Analytics Support team.

Considerations will be made for faculty, staff or graduate student staff who do not have active CMS accounts but hold positions involving data analysis for units who manage pages in the CMS. Employees sponsoring accounts for graduate student staff must take full responsibility for the student's actions within the service, including data exports and creation of shared assets.

Content pages hosted on NYU's legacy sever (non-CMS) are limited to analytics data provided by Urchin at this time. Read more about Urchin.
