The web publishing service for individuals & small groups

Each student, faculty and staff has access to 10-gigabytes of webspace to host online content, such as a website, or study or work related files, on the www.sfu.ca server. Typical uses of Personal Webspace include:

  • Students hosting a portfolio website, or
  • Faculty hosting a research CV website

Your personal webspace can be accessed using your SFU Computing ID & password, and published webpages can be viewed at 
http://www.sfu.ca/~SFUComputingID.

Alternatives for small groups

Don't want to host online content for a group on your personal webspace which displays your Computing ID, or need to allow multiple people to edit the webspace? You can request an alternative webspace on webdav.sfu.ca to host online content for small groups.
