Communication

The Student Activities Office, in conjunction with the Office of Information Technologies, provides groups with many opportunities to communicate with their members and constituencies.

Email 
Each recognized hall, club, and organization is issued a NetID. This NetID gives groups access to both the Google Mail service that students employ, and website space. All student group NetID accounts will be governed by the University's Responsible Use of Technologies policy as outlined in duLac. Your group's email address will follow this example: "club@nd.edu". Groups should not have other email addresses.

Email to undergraduate club NetIDs will be frequent. Make sure someone checks the NetID regularly, and attends to any messages there, especially emails from SAO personnel and the CCC. You are responsible for attending to the information addressed in the email, regardless of whether or not you read it or it was filed as spam.

All student group NetID passwords are reset each Fall. The NetID Administrator indicated on the Officer http://sites.nd.eduForm turned in during Club & Organization Registration will be notified when the password is ready to be picked up. The NetID Administrator is responsible for picking up the password for your group to gain access to email and website space, and agreeing to follow the Responsible Use of Technologies. If you need your password reset at any other time, please complete the NetID Applicationand turn it into 315 LaFortune. Do not contact OIT to have the password reset.

Websites
Groups are provided access to Conductor, Notre Dame's in-house site management tool, free of charge. To set-up a new site via Conductor, visit sites.nd.edu. If access to an existing site is needed, email webhelp@nd.edu

Sites that begin with "www3" are no longer supported by OIT. Groups should visit sites.nd.edu and follow the process to start a new site.

Groups do have the option to utilize other, non-Notre Dame platforms, however, the group is responsible for any fees charged and will not receive technical support from OIT or SAO. 

Club Mailboxes
All undergraduate clubs have a club mailbox in the Club Resource Center in 314 LaFortune. Please make sure to check this on a regular basis as all correspondence that arrives through SAO is delivered here. CCC correspondence (i.e. allocation letters ) is also delivered to this box.
