Building a digital presence has become a mandate for higher education institutions. To meet this goal, schools are turning to content management systems (CMS) to help them design, manage, and evaluate their digital engagement. Developers, marketers, and administrators alike all know that a quality CMS is the backbone of a dynamic website—but what they struggle to understand is which CMS best fits their needs.
EQAfy, a software company that helps colleges and universities use data to inform decision making and digital strategies, examined more than 2,000 university and college home pages to answer this looming question:
Which content management systems do U.S. colleges and universities use?
Their comprehensive research reaffirmed what higher ed professionals already know:
- OU Campus is the #1 commercial CMS for colleges and universities with 625–2, 215 students.
- OU Campus is the #1 commercial CMS for colleges and universities with more than 6,400 students.
- OU Campus is a close second as the CMS of choice for institutions with 2,125–6,400 students.
OU Campus is the #1 commercial CMS for colleges and universities with 625–2,125 students.
Schools with 625–2,125 students represent 87.8 percent of all colleges and universities in the U.S. With a broader digital reach, these schools are poised to attract even more students in the next decade. OU Campus has become the “go-to” commercial CMS for this group because of its intuitive design features and modules to meet the unique needs of higher education professionals.
Furthermore, the study found that this group of colleges and universities is experimenting with headless or decoupled CMSs like OU Campus that not only deliver content to multiple platforms, but that are also supported with in-house development expertise and customer service.

Large universities don’t have time to experiment, especially with a system as crucial as a CMS. According to eQAfy’s study, this group represents the largest 510 institutions in the U.S.—and OU Campus is their commercial CMS of choice. A pioneer in higher education CMS software, OU Campus features a knowledgeable community, ongoing product evolutions that keep the CMS in stride with school needs, and tools that give users the ability to control content and design.

The more higher education administrators, developers, and marketers learn about the feature-rich solution of OU Campus, the more they want to use it to drive their own digital engagement efforts. Currently, OU Campus is used by more colleges and universities than any other commercial CMS—and that number is growing daily.
