University of Washington Bothell

The University of Washington Bothell Website

About the website

  • It is run on Kentico, a content management system (CMS).
  • UW Bothell has been using Kentico since 2009.
  • The website exceeds 9,000 pages.
  • The website is supported by six professional staff, one student assistant, and approximately 200 departmental web publishers.

Access

Access to webpages are granted by individuals with Primary Publisher permissions and access is granted to the whole directory, not to an individual webpage. 

See the CMS Access request page for information on how to request editing permissions in Kentico. Users must have a UWB Access Account (UWBID) in order to request access. UWBIDs are different from NetIDs.

Project Requests

Advancement & External Relations has created several forms to help make it easier for UW Bothell Faculty, Staff, and Student Staff to request some of our services related to the UW Bothell website, calendar, and marketing.

New Form Request

  • Forms are helpful if people request services from your team or you want to collect contact information/feedback. Forms keep metrics and you can export the data into an Excel spreadsheet to review work completed over any amount of time.
    Consult with Advancement if you're unsure if a form is necessary: uwbadv@uw.edu
