Web Hosting Guidelines


It is the responsibility of the website owner to ensure their website meets SDSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) requirements. The Library reserves the right to deactivate a website that does not meet SDSU accessibility standards. To assist website owners with checking the level of their website's accessibility, all Library hosted websites are automatically enrolled in the campus' SiteImprove accessibility scanning platform.

Information Security

It is the responsibility of the website owner to follow CSU and SDSU Information Security Policies and Practices. The Library reserves the right to deactivate a website that does not meet CSU and SDSU Information Security standards. Library hosted websites must not collect or store credit card or any type of protected data. The Library does not assume responsibility for securing this information.

The campus VPN, or Virtual Private Network, must be used when off campus to update your website. Contact your department for info on installing and using the campus GlobalProtect VPN. The VPN extends the campus network to your computer, providing secure access to SDSU computer systems as if you where on campus.

Campus Branding

SDSU websites should follow campus branding and logo usage. Please see the SDSU Brand Guidelines for details.
