Personal Web sites have several options depending on the complexity and needs of your web site requirements. Personal web sites can be as basic as creating a site for your class or displaying your personal information such as vitae, hobbies, etc. Personal web sites are not required to adhere to Web addressing (URL), minimum page element, and other style requirements. However, they cannot be used for advertising and for profit enterprises. Please reference the Cal Poly ITS Responsible Use Policy regarding use of State resources for personal use.
