Computing and Communication Services for Student Organizations
information technology services
Student clubs and organizations who want to have a website on the BC website (www.bc.edu) should go to the Web Publishing section of the Help Center site. There you'll find a section explaining how to request a new student organization web site and some help documents on site building. The key step to getting a new site set up is the New website request form in the Support Forms section of the page. If you already have a site in place and simply need to get access to it (perhaps the previous site manager has graduated), you use instead the Website Access Request form. When using either form be sure to indicate the faculty or staff member who acts as the Advisor to your club in the space provided. We need to seek their approval and giving us their name will speed up the processing of your request.
Student organizations may wish to set up an email address for their organization. To do this, print the Student Organization Email Request Form.
BCPost Mailing List Service
BCPost is Boston College's mailing list service. A mailing list, also known as a listserv, is an email-based discussion group that allows members to send an email message to a group of people using a single address. Any member of the list may send an email message to the list and it is automatically sent to all the other members of the list. Request a new list for your organization. General information about BCPost is available on the Using BCPost page.
Student organizations can have a voicemail box set up for their organization. This allows the organization to publish a telephone number that will not change from year to year. You must contact your Faculty Advisor and ask that a voicemail service request be made to the Technology Consultant to that area. More information about using voicemail is available on the Telephone Services page.
Student organizations can request a group folder on MyFiles@bc, a file storage and sharing system that is available to the Boston College community. This allows the organization to securely store and share files on the Web. Learn how to request a MyFiles@bc group folder.
