 Personal Websites

All students, faculty, and staff have the ability to have a website using Google sites. 

Creating a website

Open your Google Apps icon and select Sites. Once there, you can follow Google's instructions for creating a site: https://support.google.com/sites/?hl=en#topic=1689606

Please note: Google is moving to a new Sites platform. Do not create any new content in the old Google sites, but click the "New Google Sites" link that has been highlighted below. 

If you would like your website name to be one of the following:

  • http://student.cua.edu/username
  • http://faculty.cua.edu/username
  • http://staff.cua.edu/username

 Please email mailto:techsupport@cua.edu with the address and name of your site in Google.

To find the name of your site, when you click on the Sites home, it will be listed. You will also need to send them your username. An example is listed below:
