Web Services

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Students, IT


For web and media publishing needs, choose from personal or group and departmental web publishing options. Additional media and publishing platforms include Blackboard, iTunes U, and streaming video.


Personal web publishing

Personal student, faculty and staff websites can be hosted on a variety of platforms:

Group and departmental web publishing

Web hosting options for departments, organizations and groups include:


tigger.uic.edu hosts the main UIC website, departmental and groups sites, as well as personal websites for faculty and staff. We recommend migrating personal sites to people.uic.edu, which offers more space and better PHP and CGI support. Departmental sites hosted on tigger can be migrated to webhost.uic.edu.

Additional platforms

Blackboard is a web-based integrated teaching and learning environment. Primary uses of Blackboard as a web-publishing platform include per-semester class sites and continuous, non-class related sites.

UIC on iTunes U provides access to a wide range of UIC-related digital media content via the iTunes Music Store, Apple’s popular music jukebox and online music source.


A UIC netID and common password is required to publish  on the web using any of these web and media publishing resources. Note that it is Illinois state law that all university Web sites must be accessible.


Commercial use of University of Illinois web resources is not permitted.
