  • You can only login to your website from a computer on campus.
  • The password for your webspace is different from your email password by default, if you forget your webspace password you will have to get it reset from CHASS. Contact Frieda about this.
  • You can view your website by going to "{name}" where {name} refers to the username you used to login to the web server, usually the first portion of your email without the "" part.
