It gets better!

The information for students is currently spread across many different websites, and it is clear that this information must be presented coherently. This will consist of both reorganisation and removal of content, and of creating a new structure and new procedures for making the information available, thus making day-to-day life easier for students. As part of improving and streamlining information, we have started building an intranet for students. The plan is to launch and open the intranet in November. The project will be completed in March 2023.

Relevant to students

The new intranet gathers information that is relevant to students, for instance how things work on campus, what support the university offers, how to study abroad, students’ rights and responsibilities, and other useful details. Information that concerns teaching will remain in Lisam’s course and programme rooms. Similarly, information concerning student associations, sections and nations will continue to be available on Kårservice's page, studentlivet.se.

Student council

To ensure that the content of the intranet meets the needs of the students, the project will have regular meetings with the student council, which includes the chair and vice-chair of the student unions. Also, the project has worked with a reference group consisting of student ambassadors from different programmes, campuses and cities, to ensure that the content is relevant. The intranet is built in SharePoint, a platform that is already used for course and programme rooms (Lisam). Everyone with a LiU-ID (students and staff) will have access to the intranet.
