Activating your Penn State Personal Web Space
You can't publish anything online at Penn State (blogs, websites, e-portfolios, etc.) unless you have activated your Personal Web Space privileges.
How to Apply
- Go to the personal.psu.edu website.
- Review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
- Click on the link that prompts you to apply for Web space.
- Complete a five-question quiz. If you answer at least four of the questions correctly, your request for personal web space will be approved and created immediately. You may take the quiz as many times as needed in order to pass.
You must successfully activate your Web space in order to complete course-related Web publishing activities.
Did it work?
Do you want to make sure that your Web space is activated? Then check your public Penn State URL. Go to personal.psu.edu/userid, where "userid" is your Penn State access account user ID. If this comes up "Not Found," something has gone awry, and you will need to contact the ITS HelpDesk.
