This service allows the creation of a shortened, or friendly, URL also known as a FURL. These URLs are simply web addresses which are easy to read and include word(s) that describe the content of the web page.
FURLs are primarily meant for print publications in order to make it easy for customers to type in the web page address. FURLs are also case sensitive and best practices suggest they be in all lower case letters, e.g., www.miami.edu/web.
All friendly URL requests are subject to name approval by University Communications. Please allow two (2) business days for request fulfillment.
