What Replaces CWIS Accounts?

ITS recommends and provides support for the following services for public websites, team websites and intranets, and file storage.

    Public Websites

    Sites at USC, a free, self-service web publishing option available to faculty and staff, makes it easy to quickly publish USC-branded websites. For more information, please see itservices.usc.edu/sites.

    Google Sites allows USC faculty, staff, and students to create free, custom personal websites using their USC-provided Google accounts. For more information, please see itservices.usc.edu/googlesites.
