  CU People

CU People is no longer available - the service was decommissioned on June 30, 2009

Monthly communications about the decommission were provided via email to all CU People users, beginning in February 2009 - with a final notice provided on June 18, 2009.

The decision to decommission CU People was vetted within CIT, and with the IT Managers Council and the Faculty Advisory Board on Information Technologies (FABIT).

CU People was developed more than 10 years ago to provide personal web space at a time when there weren't many other options. Today, other alternatives exist on and off campus. In addition, there are specific technical issues related to the retirement of Kerberos and Sidecar (systems that allow you to login with your NetID) that would require re-engineering the current CU People service to make it secure. Finally, given today's budget climate other CIT services are receiving funding priority.

If you have questions, please contact the CIT HelpDesk via email at or via telephone at 607-255-8990.

What happened to my CU People pages?

CU People pages are no longer available. However, a self-service redirect tool is available that will allow you to forward your CU People URL to a new web site. This redirect will be active for a one-year term until June 2010.
