The CMS service is geared toward members of the UBC community that have a need for a common look and feel website, and as such, are often faculty units, administrative departments, campus initiatives, etc. It is recommended that individuals look at UBC Blogs for personal web publishing solutions.

  1. Create a UBC CMS User Account
  2. Fill out the Website Request Form
