April has been a month of new things for AHS. We've got a new website, we've welcomed applications for accommodation from new students and we're planning exciting new things for our bars and eateries.
You may have noticed that AHS webpages look a bit different this month. Launched on Wednesday 6 April, we were the first section to go live on the new website, just in time for students to apply for their accommodation for the September 2016 arrivals.
Digital Marketing and Communications have been working tirelessly for the last 18 months developing a new website and Content Management System for the University. Now it's here. It looks great, will scale with your mobile device, and make finding information easier for users.
The following sections are now live:
We're now working on the transition of Security, and that should be live in the very near future.
Applications for student accommodation opened at 9am on Tuesday 12 April and we can't wait to welcome this year's cohort to our accommodation in the city and on campus in September.
This year there's more accommodation available to students than ever, with four new properties in the city centre that are managed by CRM Students.
New look Wessex Restaurant
Over the next few weeks there will be some changes in Wessex Restaurant. Keep your eyes peeled for some great new developments coming to our fine dining restaurant in June.
And speaking of June...
Looking towards the summer
The students will be leaving us in the next few months as their first year of study comes to an end, but that doesn't mean things stop for AHS. That's just the start of one of our busiest periods in the year.
It isn't long until we begin welcoming thousands of bed and breakfast guests, backpackers, families, summer schools and conference delegates to our events venues and guest accommodation on campus and in the city.
We're recruiting more staff and will soon be launching our summer campaign. We look forward to meeting some see some new faces soon and welcoming them into the AHS team.
