Our new site has launched!

After months of research, testing and design work, the UTS Students’ Association is thrilled to announce the launch of our new responsive website, available at utsstudentsassociation.org.au

The website has been developed in conjunction with Bigfish, a local full-service creative agency specialising in design and digital. Designed to improve the association’s connection with its diverse student body, the website incorporates best-practice user requirements and introduces a number of new features.

Students will find the website easy to use on the go, with a responsive, user-friendly interface that is designed for every device. An intuitive navigation system and improved menu functionality ensures that relevant information will be simpler to find. The website also meets new accessibility standards (WCAG 2.0 AA), supporting equal access and inclusion. 

Executive Officer Mariah said the new website reflects the Association’s mission in supporting all students, regardless of ability or circumstance. 

It is important for us to make information regarding student rights, legal advice, peer tutoring, student welfare initiatives and collective opportunities easily accessible.

The UTSSA has also introduced a range of new content to the website, including on-demand video content to provide students with a walk through of our services. In addition, there is a range of guides, templates and videos designed to help guide you through university life.

Says UTSSA President Mehmet: “We hope students find the overhauled website intuitive and relevant; a lot of work went into making sure it encompasses valuable information and resources to help advance our activism efforts, raise public awareness of our work and increase our transparency.”

Why has the UTS Student Association launched a new website?

Our mission at the UTSSA is to represent and support UTS students. We wanted to create a new website that would help us to do this better. Our aim was to make it easier for students to understand and access advocacy, legal and tutoring services, join collectives and groups, and learn more about our history and governance. Essentially, the new website has the functionality and features that allow us to be as helpful and transparent as possible.

How has the website been improved?

The website is now responsive and has been designed for use on any device. It has been optimised for performance, meaning pages will load more quickly and use less data. It has an updated page and navigational structure, so you’ll be able to find things more easily. Plus, it looks great! (If we do say so ourselves).

Is the website accessible?

Yes. It’s important to us to provide a consistent user experience for every student, and make sure everyone is able to find, access and understand the information they need. The new website is compliant to W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 at a level of AA.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to chat to us.

Can the website be accessed from any browser and device?

The website can be accessed from Internet Explorer 11 and all modern browsers (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox) from any device. The new responsive design makes sure you’ll get a consistent user experience on your phone, tablet, laptop and desktop.

Is there new content on the website? What if I can’t find the old content I need?

The content on the old website has been migrated to the new website and updated where needed. We’ll continue to post all the latest news, articles and event info. Additionally, we’ve introduced new content, including on-demand video, to provide you with a walk through of our services.

If you’re unable to find something you need, please give us a shout.
