A: Yes, student organizations are offered complimentary space on the orgs.wku.edu
server. The procedure for obtaining OUCampus training and access, and for requesting
website space is the same. We offer website templates that are not branded with WKU
logos and colors for student and other orgs on campus. To request OUCampus access
and to request a site, please visit https://www.wku.edu/apps/ouaddons/
Q: How can I have my organization's link placed on the homepage?
A: The WKU.edu homepage and Quick Links panel has been strategically designed to meet
the needs of prospective students and their families. The office of Creative Web Services
maintains analytic data that shows how effective links on the homepage are. Over time,
we may change out links based on their usage by WKU constituents. If you are interested
in placing a link to your organization on the homepage, we request that you submit
your request via email to the WKU Web Standards Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: How can I add my organization's link or category to a main landing page?
A: Main landing pages were created as a way to organize the WKU.edu website for the convenience of our users. If you would like your link or category added to a landing page, please email your request to email@example.com.
Q: How do I add my event listing to the events calendar or Spotlight section?
A: To learn more about how to list your event on the WKU Events Calendar, please visit
The Spotlight section on the homepage is managed by Creative Web Services and the space is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and only relevant events/organizations are chosen. While we will do our best to accommodate your request, If selected, your organization is not guaranteed a specific time period, as breaking news events at times must take precedence over Spotlight listings for departments or campus organizations.
Q: How can I add my photo to the WKU homepage?
A: Photos that are in the photo rotation on the WKU.edu homepage are selected according to relevance, timeliness and often coincide with events on campus, appropriate seasons, etc. If you have a high resolution photo from an event that falls within these parameters, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request inclusion in the homepage rotation. We cannot guarantee a length of time that your photo will remain in the rotation, but we will do our best to accommodate your request. We do not typically advertise events in the homepage rotation space unless they have a very broad reach.
