Accommodation Service Website Realignment

by Alan

The home page is now designed around the user rather than around the institution.University of Cambridge, Identity Guidelines 2008

This entails realigning the design, updating the copy and the way that information is communicated, and adding new features to make the site clearer to users.

The Accommodation Service website has provided valiant service for five years, and this major update aims to extend its life and utility with the latest web technologies.

New features include a new content management system for staff to improve articles that they publish, clearer forms and maps, and a notice board for logged in clients.  In addition the new web pages have support for modern browsers and updated web standards, an upgrade to the service hosting and underlying SQL database.
