    Post how to write it correctly

    Hello
    I am wondering if when I write :

    (insert here web address ) is now available at the University of Northern Minnesota
    is it correct to precede universities names with : The or can I say:
    (insert here web address ) is now available at University of Northern Minnesota
    or
    (insert here web address ) is now available at UNM

    so should I always write before universities names with the when the particular name allows it or should I ignore using The before universities names?

    Thanks,

    It depends how the university is usually known. Some universities are known by their name with the article, and some are not, compare: Oxford University, Cambridge University, The London School of Economics (often called the LSE).

    Re: how to write it correctly

    Use the form the university itself uses its website.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
