WebSpace

Overview

WebSpace To Be Retired on May 19, 2014. WebSpace is a legacy online file storage and sharing service. No new accounts are available at this time. Existing accounts and user materials will continue to operate as normal until the scheduled retirement date of May 19, 2014. Retiring WebSpace will include comprehensive communication and working directly with users to migrate content to alternatives solutions such as UTBox or Google Drive/Sites. Please contact the ITS Help Desk with any questions or for assistance migrating WebSpace content to an alternative service.

This proposal was endorsed by the IT Architecture & Infrastructure Committee at the October 11, 2013 meeting.
