URL Request

Policy

Domain names (URL's) within the TXSTATE.EDU domain are governed by UPPS.04.01.08.

The university’s URL naming convention is designed to align with its organizational structure to eliminate duplicates, avoid conflicts, and minimize ambiguity. URL's should reflect the name of the responsible university organizational unit (e.g., division, college, or department).

Once a URL request has been processed, the old URL will still remain active for 6 months (unless requested to be set inactive sooner). This buffer period allows site visitors to ease into the new URL, while also providing time for departments to make any required adjustments.

If you have any questions while you are completing this form and are unable to find the answer within UPPS.04.01.08, contact the Gato team at gato@txstate.edu or 512-245-5566.
