Shortening links using the URL Shortener

This service is for faculty, staff, and students.

The URL Shortener is a web application designed to provide students, staff, and faculty the ability to both shorten URLs as well as maintain an association with the University.

Shortening a link

Once you're signed into the application, the option to shorten a new link can be found on the right side of the page.

  • Faculty and staff are provided an option to set the value of the new link as well as the website it directs to. If no value for the short URL is included, a random URL will be created.

  • Students are provided the option of setting where the link directs to, but the value of the new link will be set to their username.

Modifying a shortened link

The left column of the page consists of already shortened links that can be viewed and modified. All users have the option to modify where links redirect to by editing the link and selecting the Modify button. Faculty and staff may have multiple results show at a time depending on how many links they have shortened.
