Domain name policy

The Information Services Committee (ISC) is responsible for approving the University’s top-level domain names (TLDs) under cam.ac.uk.

It has devolved the management of this to UIS, which will provision an appropriately named domain where one of the following eligible categories applies:

  1. A recognised University Institution, Centre, or Institute
  2. Strategic research initiatives and strategic research networks
  3. A recognised University-wide service or initiative
  4. A request directly endorsed by a Pro Vice Chancellor (PVC) or the Registrary

For those ineligible for a TLD, a sub-domain of one of the following may be appropriate:

  • an existing TLD
  • group.cam.ac.uk — a recognised University group
  • societies.cam.ac.uk – an established University society
  • event.cam.ac.uk — conferences and symposia
  • fund.cam.ac.uk — funds and bursaries.
  • masters.cam.ac.uk — inter-Institutional postgraduate degree-bearing courses
  • tripos.cam.ac.uk — inter-Institutional undergraduate degree-bearing courses

In all cases, advice can be sought from the UIS Relationship Managers. You can find further information about the application process is available with our Guidelines for requesting domain names within cam.ac.uk.
