Campus Websites and URLs

Due to the name change from Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne (IPFW) to Purdue University Fort Wayne, all website addresses will need to change from ipfw.edu to pfw.edu.

The majority of campus URLs will change from ipfw.edu to pfw.edu on May 19-20, 2018.  URL's referencing ipfw.edu will continue to work until June 30, 2019.  Below is a tentative timeline of changes.

May 8, 2018

  • ServiceNow changes from ipfw.service-now.com to purduefw.service-now.com.  The "ipfw" address will only be available until May 16, 2018 due to a vendor limitation.  Update links and bookmarks now.

May 19-20, 2018

  • All campus web pages including www.ipfw.edu, library.ipfw.edu, tapestry.ipfw.edu, and many others, will be available as pfw.edu addresses. The "ipfw" URLs will work until June 30, 2019, but all bookmarks should be changed after May 20. Website publishers should continue to make sure content is current and accurate, including changing emails to @pfw.edu. Web addresses (URLs) do not need to be changed. Refer to the Quick Brand Guidelines [PDF] on how to refer to the institution's new name and be sure to avoid using "PFW." Marketing Communications will have other messages this summer on further changes to the website.
  • myIPFW (my.ipfw.edu) changes to goPFW (go.pfw.edu).  The my.ipfw.edu URL will continue to work until June 30, 2019 but all links and bookmarks should be changed after May 20.
  • Blackboard changes from ipfw.blackboard.com to pfw.blackboard.com.  The "ipfw" address will only be available for a brief period of time.  Update links and bookmarks after May 20.
