UIS develops new student portals for CU Denver, UCCS

UIS recently redesigned the student portals for the University of Colorado Denver and University of Colorado Colorado Springs, in collaboration with campus partners.

The CU Denver beta portal made its debut on August 8, 2019, and the UCCS beta portal became available in February 2020. The beta versions allowed students to try out the new portals and provide feedback. 

CU Denver has begun to roll out its portal, and it is anticipated that the UCCS student portal will move to a live version later this year. 

What’s new?

These redesigned portals bring new, responsive tiles to the CU Denver and UCCS student portals. The new designs include dynamic and static ways to easily display personalized and key information, such as degree audit, billing, student accounts and class schedules. The portals are also more mobile-friendly allowing students to look up information and make changes on the go. 

“We believe these redesigned portals, built on PeopleSoft’s mobile-friendly ‘Fluid’ technology, will provide more consistent user experience, giving students easy access to the same information, and in a similar format, on their mobile phone as they have on their laptop or computer,” said Bob Hasenhundl, portal lead with UIS.

A test drive button was created on the current student portal home pages to help students get familiar with the new portals before they are finalized.

“The UIS portal team did a fantastic job. The new CU Denver | Anschutz portal offers a streamlined dashboard and a fully customizable experience for students. It’s modern, intuitive, and offers more self-service options across any device,” said Andy Liakos, director of Digital Strategies for CU Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus.

“Biggest benefit of the new UCCS Portal that UIS designed is that not only is it mobile responsive but it is accessible and has what the students need to accomplish what they need to through a single sign-on with real time dynamic content,” said Craig Decker, web services manager at the UCCS Office of Information Technology.
