Wildcard certs; to use or not to use

Has anyone used wildcard certs for their university domain? What are the
pros and cons? We are in the process of moving our public pages to a
hosting site and I've been asked if wildcard certs can be used. I assessed
using wild card certs in the past (based on the way they wanted to use
them) and deemed the risk was to great.

The environment they want to do this in now is with multiple domains on one
IP address.

Any input would be appreciated.
