A static site uses only HTML to serve its pages, so you can use CSS, JavaScript, and server-side includes, but there are no provisions for CGI or other programming options.

Typical use? If you have a website that does not require back-end programming languages like ColdFusion or PHP, then static web hosting might be best suited for your needs.

This is called two-factor authentication, and it's required for access to certain university services, such as Workday, Student Center, and Student Essentials. Duo Security provides the technology behind Two-Step Login.

CU Software is the university’s central resource for licensing end-user focused desktop software. We currently manage 25 different license agreements for more than 100 products. Most of these agreements have annual or multi-year terms, which are continually evaluated and renewed. While some products are available for general usage without a licensing fee, many do have associated fees. Fees, eligibility requirements, and whether the license provides home use vary by product.


The Electronic Signature service, using Adobe Sign, gives you the ability to send documents and collect signatures electronically for approval. Adobe Sign works within your existing systems and processes, and the e-signatures are secure and legal. You can also digitize existing signing processes, such as applications, enrollments, or other form-based documents.


Shibboleth is a higher education community implementation of web single-sign-on using the SAML protocol. The Shibboleth Service Provider can often be used as a replacement for CUWebAuth. The advantage of using Shibboleth is that you can enable access to your site to users from other institutions that are members of the InCommon Federation (see next paragraph). You can restrict access to include only certain members of InCommon and/or people at member institutions who have certain attributes, such as faculty, student, etc.

An e-list is a way to communicate with a number of people through a single email address. Whenever someone sends a message to an e-list address, that message goes out to everyone subscribed to the list. 

Participation in e-lists hosted by CIT is free; there are no subscription fees for list owners or list members. Anyone who has access to email can take advantage of the service. CIT's e-list service uses a product called Lyris ListManager.
