Hi JJ! Me again. I was wanting to check out Brittana U's page this morning, and when I clicked on your link, it took me to an ad site! Is BU no longer a thing? Hope your day is gorgeous. xo, mcm

Short answer? Brittana U is still a thing. The website just expired.
Long answer? When the idea for Brittana U was first developed, a very generous person agreed to create a website for it and act as webmistress. She did a wonderful job, but the site itself never caught on, as fandom members were reluctant to leave tumblr and most of the faculty members were accessible through their own personal blog pages.
Aside from acting as an archive for some of Roch’s stuff, which had been otherwise lost when Roch deleted her original blog back in the day, the Brittana U website was mostly derelict from the start.
Eventually, the webmistress disappeared. We haven’t been able to update the site without her because she had all the access codes and passwords.
Now, apparently, the domain name has expired, as well.
While it’s sad that the site is gone—because it was a very beautiful piece of work and good archive—Brittana U itself was never dependent on the site to function.
Much like Hogwarts, Brittana U will always be here to welcome shippers home. As long as there are still a few professors around, and there are, we’ll be holding classes, answering asks, and reblogging cheerleaders, as usual.
I hope you have a gorgeous day, as well!
