Public Web, or PubWeb, provides hosting services for university departments (business units, operational teams and service lines), Ag Extension and affiliates, individual faculty and staff members, and students organizations with sponsorship of a faculty member.
Accounts are not provided for individual students; however, instructors and work supervisors may request accounts for students to satisfy their NDSU academic or NDSU employment work.
