The Waterloo Content Management System (WCMS) is the centrally supported website creation and maintenance tool used to create, edit, and manage web content at the University of Waterloo.

This user-friendly system provides a way for users to manage digital information and content on a website without prior knowledge of web programming or markup languages. It is specifically designed for the University and promotes the UWaterloo branding within the system. The tools within the WCMS are accessible and comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

WCMS 3 is the newest version of the WCMS with many changes from the former version making it more secure and incorporating more options for creativity in the information architecture of web pages and content.
