University Hall (via PPR)

The Brief

UniHall needed a portal to be appended to the main University of Western Australia website, that showcased the living quarters and lifestyle of living at UniHall to prospective students. They also wanted the site to act as a way to connect with previous Alumni, promote events on campus, distribute the newsletter and generally outreach to new student parents.

The Solution

This was a joint project with Thought Collective and PPR while I was Senior Developer with that firm. Design was handled by PPR and Project Management by Thought Collective.

WordPress was used to handle the extensive documentation needed to deliver all of the relevant information to students. The design of the site was constructed so that wherever the visitor goes throughout the site, it is easy to know which content area/subject are they are in. Site heirachy, and conditional CSS was used to achieve this.

An Event Manager was installed to handle the events and allow students to RSVP without needing to purchase tickets.

The Outcome

The student and faculty response was highly positive and the site has now been live over 12 months and continues to be a valuable tool for the staff and students.
