GitHub Campus Program

Frequently Asked Questions about the GitHub Campus Program

Users should use the login button on the GitHub service page. While Github.com/southernmethodistuniversity is also registered - It should not be used as it is not integrated with SSO and the University's access management. Users should connect with the github.smu.edu instance only.

The GitHub Campus Program is available to all active faculty, staff, and students. The program is not available to contractors, sponsored accounts, and former students.

If someone leaves the University, we can retrieve their items for up to 18 months before the files are deleted. Users will receive a notice if the account has been dormant for six months. We recommend students should download their code repositories before leaving the University.
