Why Your Students Need a University App NOW
Student life can be tough enough with all the studying, deadlines and exams and that’s not even the half of it. So, should we really be wasting time worrying about what events to go to or trying to find the best offer on sausage rolls? Students are often the first to embrace new technology and are always ahead of the times, and so should your Students’ Union.
Here’s a list of app features to make all your students’ lives easier and take your student engagement to the next level:
Get The Party Started
Heading out during university can be pretty hectic. Where is everybody going tonight? Or even worse, waiting in a queue for hours to get tickets to a huge event?
Set your students up with an app that will help ease their lives, and yours too! Event management features can help you to easily create all those university events and sell the tickets to your students through an app without having to leave the office. Plus, it cuts out those pesky queues and your students will thank you while purchasing tickets from the safety of their beds.
Saving Those Pennies
Treat your students with offers from the brands they love. Students love a good bargain and let’s face it we’ve all been left with too much month at the end of our money! Let local businesses connect with your students and give them the offers they care about. It’s now easier than ever to connect with local businesses. Make sure your students are getting the high quality offers that are tailor-made just for them, instead of sifting through hundreds of those unwanted ones just to find that sausage roll deal.
One of the things students love about university is all the free stuff. Why not create competitions right from your app for all your students to see? The app will even pick a winner for you. Be sure to have a good prize though! Plus, you can encourage students to share the competition for more entries, so let them spread the word for you. You can even run a charity raffle during RAG week.
One of the hard things about university is trying to get information from so many different platforms. One university, one news feed. Why not have just one news feed to keep your students updated on all they need to know around campus, from exam notifications and extended library opening hours, to cancelled lectures and Fresher’s Week announcements. Easy for you and easier for them.
Also, check out our university app here to see all the above features in action, and as luck would have it we’re currently running a competition (ending 29/02/16) where we’re giving one university a free university app for a full year.
