Student Life Communications provides QR codes and short URLs for printed materials for departments or units within the Division of Student Life. Short URLs are hosted at "uiowa.me" and are used for print pieces or displays that may benefit from a shorter URL. Please fill out this form to submit a request. 

Process

  • Not everything needs a short URL!
  • If you have a bulk request for a specific project, please write to imu-web@uiowa.edu
  • Once you've submitted the request, you should hear back within a day or so with the information you need. 

Strategy

  • Use short URLs for permanent pages, like "mentalhealth.uiowa.edu" or "mentalhealth.uiowa.edu/suicide-prevention"
  • Do not use short URLs for temporary pages like individual event pages, Zoom URLs, or social media posts.
  • Short URLs are not needed for already-short URLs, such as "imu.uiowa.edu" but QR codes may be needed for those.
Do you need a QR code, short URL, or both?
