What is it?

URL shortening is a technique in which a URL may be made substantially shorter in length and have (sometimes) more meaning.

https://www.epfl.ch/campus/services/communication/audiences-canaux/epfl-magazine/ becomes https://go.epfl.ch/mag.

Reveal URLs

If you want to know where a shortened URL will redirect, you can find it out with the URL /reveal/alias.
For instance, to know where https://go.epfl.ch/mag will redirect, use https://go.epfl.ch/reveal/mag.
