Request a TU WordPress Site for Yourself or Your Organization

WordPress is the browser-based web publishing solution best suited for personal and organizational sites at TU, including:

  • Student personal sites (wpstudents.towson.edu)
  • Faculty and staff personal sites (wp.towson.edu)
  • Student organization sites (wp.towson.edu)
  • Department and other organization sites (wp.towson.edu)

A broader discussion is available on the TU Web Publishing webpage. To acquire or request a WordPress site, follow the appropriate instructions below.

Acquire your student site

  1. Open wpstudents.towson.edu and select the LOGIN OR CREATE YOUR SITE button.
  2. Select the Log in with Towson University NetID button and sign in with your NetID username and password.

After you sign in, your browser will display a page nearly identical to the page displayed before you signed in. Look for the WordPress admin toolbar (pictured below) as an indication that you have successfully opened your WordPress site. Select My Sites from the toolbar to open your dashboard.
