Templates and CMS - Carnegie Mellon University


As part of Computing Services web publishing tools, the university offers a content management system (CMS) for creating official Carnegie Mellon University websites.  Some of the advantages of using the CMS are:

  • It is free.
  • It allows people with little to no experience to build and maintain professional websites.
  • It creates a more coherent web presence across Carnegie Mellon University departments and divisions.


  • All academic and administrative departments are eligible to use the CMS.
  • Research groups, centers, and labs are eligible to use the CMS provided they have official recognition by their department and an official name.
