The university’s central Office of Communications has partnered with Enterprise IT to ensure that jhu.edu subdomains are in alignment with the university’s overall branding and Use of Name guidelines and are appropriately labeled based on the content of the website or application. Generally speaking, jhu.edu subdomains are limited for use to university-wide or interdivisional entities and initiatives. Any department, initiative, or other entity that exists within a specific school or division should request a subdomain from their school or division.
Additionally, we advise against creating subdomains for redirects.
Any department, initiative, or other entity using any jhu.edu subdomain or directory, divisional subdomain or directory, or any other url that references Johns Hopkins University, JHU, or any other version of the Name must comply with the university’s branding guidelines.
