The new website and Tenant Pages of the Student Village Foundation of Turku (TYS) were taken into use on May Day. The apartment search and apartment application form were also renewed at the same time. The guiding principle on the new site can be summarised through the following phrase: Welcome to your own home. For many students, TYS apartment is their first very own home. An apartment can also be an exchange student’s first touch to Finland and Finnish culture. The foundation’s electronic services form a cohesive unit and make it easy for customers to find what they are looking for.
Thanks to the renewed website, it is now even easier for TYS customers to apply for and find an apartment. On the new website, you can easily manage all your housing affairs through one page. The target group’s needs and feedback concerning the previous website were taken into account in the project. The website is available in three languages on all devices.
Also TYS’ brand look was renewed in connection to updating the website. The starting point for this renewal was a modern, attractive look that also pays homage to the foundation’s long history. The brand symbol, which depicts the Student Village pictured from above, was still kept in the logo, as it has been in use since the early days of the foundation. One central change is the use of the TYS abbreviation. The colour scheme and images have also been renewed.
