Design an app greatly rooted in utility while provides engaging features. Furthermore, the app should provide a welcoming first-year experience.


Our focus was on utility. We conducted contextual interviews on how students and faculty used the campus tools.

Together with persona development, we narrowed the features to core functions students, staff, and faculty needed to complete their tasks.

We created a single, simple interface for students, staff and faculty to quickly access core functions. Upon our redesign of the university mobile app, increase student registration via the app by 48%.

Furthermore, the usability sessions concluded most participants found the app to be well-organized, uncluttered and easy to use. However, the participants stated the app skews to students living on campus and new students.
