Domain Name Registration

A domain name can be an important part of a UCLA department or unit's identity. Authorized administrators of a school, department, center, laboratory, division or institute (Campus Entity) may request to register internal UCLA domain names (e.g., for School of Arts and Architecture) through IT Services using the Web Center form and the UCLA Domain Name Request Form.

All requests for internal UCLA domain names require sign-off approval from the appropriate Vice Chancellor, Dean, Department Chair, Director or designee. IT Services will generally assign the requested name to the Campus Entity if it is not already in use. In exceptional cases, University Communications reserves the right to deny a request if there is a clear institutional reason why the requested name would not be in the best interest of the University. For more information, see UCLA Policy 411 (Registration and Use of UCLA Domain Names).

The requesting Campus Entity generally runs its own local nameserver and IT Services will convey authority for an approved subdomain to the Campus Entity. Additionally, IT Services provides backup name service for all subdomains under and the subnet reverse mappings for UCLA's class B networks 128.97., 131.179., 149.142., 164.67. and 169.232.

For help setting up or configuring Domain Name Services, email, and other network-related services, contact the Network Coordinator or designee for your department.
