Illinois Compass 2g, Canvas, How to request a new space or check status of request

I am an Instructor and would like information for requesting a space on Illinois Compass 2g or Canvas.

Once you are ready to request a course space, research space, collaboration space, or development (practice) space, that can be done here:

On the "Submit Your Request" page, you will be asked if you have special instructions--if requesting a Canvas space, enter the word "Canvas" in Special Instructions.


For an Illinois Compass space, please allow up to 15 minutes for your space to be provisioned and built. You may also have to logout and close your current browser in order to access the content area of the new space.

If the space is being requested for Canvas@Illinois, it will be built between 3 and 5pm (US Central), Monday through Friday, excluding University holidays.

If you would like to know the status of your request, you can do that through the same request tool:
