Community Websites


This web space is intended for student clubs and organizations to create and maintain a web presence.  Examples include the Student Government Association, Student Organizations at the Law School, and the Slavic Club.

Before requesting a space, each student organization is required to register with Community Development who maintains an official listing of clubs and organizations on their official website.  The official listing contains the club or organization name, its officers, faculty advisor(s) and basic contact information.  The Community Development webpage then offers the student club or organization the ability to link to another resource for more information.  They can choose to link to the club or organization’s national presence, a University hosted blog, a Facebook or MySpace presence or a website on shulife.shu.edu. 

The websites contained on shulife.shu.edu will expire on an annual basis with registration required with Community Development to keep the pages active and accessible.

Technical Info:

  • The communication protocol is SFTP only.
  • The server is accessible from both on and off campus and is not crawled by major search engines.
  • Authentication is set via the University's account management services.

Request an Account:

Account generation is made via a request to Community Development.

How to Access:

The current tool supported by the University for creating and maintaining websites is Microsoft's Expression Web which is part of the University's standard software suite.  If you do not already have the software loaded on your University-issued computer, you may contact the Service Desk to request the software or you may use the software in the University's open computer labs.

Courses in Web Development and the use of Microsoft's Expression Web are offered through the CTC on a regular basis.  Review the current available courses »

Users not wishing to use the University-provided software may use the web development software and FTP client of their choice.

Other Available Web Technologies 

WordPress Blogs and Sites are currently available at http://blogs.shu.edu/ and are used for both academic and administrative communications. This service is also available to academic departments that want to have an interactive web presence for their current students outside of the official department pages residing at www.shu.edu.
