Web publishing

Most faculties and departments have their own websites; the majority of which are hosted on the UCT Web Content Management System (CMS). The UCT CMS uses Drupal, an open-source software, which offers a flexible, yet stable platform for web publishing.


Web publishing is governed by three policies, which we encourage you to read. They are:

  1. UCT Web Content Management Policy
  2. Web Hosting Policy
  3. Domain Name Policy
