The Faculty Web Server is available to individual faculty and staff members who wish to publish information about how the individual faculty member is meeting the teaching, research, and service missions of the University. UNLV faculty members who would like to create a website for university purposes, such as promoting research or a class, can apply for an account.
Faculty websites are hosted by the Office of Information Technology (OIT).

Types of Accounts
Ready Made Pages
The Office of Information Technology has pre-made websites available for you. You will not need to produce your own graphics and HTML, or buy special software. Just add your Vita, classes or research highlights. Take a look at available themes and designs to decide if this is the right choice for you.
We supply the server space, and you provide everything else. For more information on creating your own content check out these pages:
