Student Organizations Websites, Accounts, and Passwords

General information about Student Org (SO) accounts, websites, and passwords


All student org websites will begin with  Requests for web page space assignment will be made by the student organization to John Landrum, the Student Life Program Coordinator, who will forward the request to the Help Desk.  The website name will be the same as the name of the so account (minus the so) and is determined by John Landrum.

Rights for website editing will be assigned to the appropriate SO account only, no individual student accounts will have rights to edit web pages. 

The preferred way of editing student org websites is on campus in computer labs using Microsoft Expression Web or Dreamweaver.

SO Accounts

SO accounts will not be restricted as to where they can logon with the exception that Remote Lab will not be available with any SO logon account.  Those accounts will be able to logon to any campus lab machine or the machines in the student organization suite (University Union Room 112).

SO accounts will be prompted to do the periodic password resets in the same manner as normal staff/faculty accounts.  In the event where a password reset needs to be done, an email from the Student Life Program Coordinator to the Help Desk will be sufficient to accomplish this task. New account requests will come from the Student Life Program Coordinator and be sent to the Help Desk via email. 

UPDATE 3/20/17: If a student requests that a password be reset for an organization account, they should be directed to John Landrum instead, as he makes all of the password reset requests for the student orgs. The password should not be reset if a student requests it or the request comes from the organization email.

Account deletion requests will be handled via email from the Student Life Program Coordinator, indicating if there is a corresponding UWGB web page that will also need to be deleted.


We also allow Student Orgs to create WordPress sites now.

Email Lists

Email contact groups will have to be created manually by the students who have the SO account password for their organization.
