Modern Campus CMS (formerly Omni CMS or OU Campus) is a web content management system (CMS) that allows users with little or no coding knowledge to manage and update their website.

The CMS' features include multi-browser support, what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor, auto-save, version control, scheduled publishing,  and workflow/content approval. The templates used by SDSU use a mobile-friendly responsive design and support web accessibility standards.
