Northwest Missouri State University


Getting Started

Overview | For Students | For Faculty, Staff or Campus Organizations

When you are assigned a Northwest Domain username and password, web space is automatically allocated for you. The default page for all personal web sites is index.htm. Below are instructions about how to access and update pages on your web site.

Student accounts are limited to 10 MBs and non-student accounts are limited to 40 MBs. If you require more space, you may contact Crystal Ward at 660.562.1033 or email her at crystal@nwmissouri.edu. In addition, if you find you are not able to upload a specific type of file, you may send a request to Crystal asking for the file type to be allowed on the server. All requests will be reviewed on an individual basis.

Attention Off-Campus Students

If you have changed your password through web-based email, chances are, your domain password and email password are now out of sync. To connect to CatPages, you need to use your domain password. You can reset your password online using the Internet Service Manager. If you no longer remember your original password, contact the HelpDesk at 660.562.1634.

Guides for Connecting Off-Campus

These guides were created to assist students in a particular class. Note that creating the 626 is not required. You can upload your files directly into your folder.
