Domain Names & Naming

The university provides domain names for official university departments, activities and related organizations.

Names in the utexas.edu domain are assigned for colleges, schools and departments within the university such as engr.utexas.edu or giving.utexas.edu as well as university-wide services such as lib.utexas.edu and utdirect.utexas.edu.

The Office of the Vice President for Legal Affairs has directed that names are not assigned outside university organizational boundaries.

University Communications and the University Communications Standards Committee (UCSC) has created a standard for domain naming that has been ratified by IT Governance. The U.T. Website Domain Naming Standard is a companion document to the U.T. Domain Name System policy and outlines the university's public-facing website domain name standard.
