Explore UNH: A New Campus Visitor’s Guide for University of New Haven

February 6, 2013: In response to the growing popularity of mobile devices, University of New Haven today introduced Explore UNH, a complete mobile  guide for prospective students, alumni, and visitors to campus. “Students expect an innovative, progressive campus like University of New Haven to have a strong mobile presence” commented Kevin Phillips, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management.  “Explore UNH was designed with our prospective students in mind and showcases our university beautifully.” Explore UNH provides relevant information about attending University of New Haven, including majors, student life, residence halls, dining, and mobile forms to receive additional information.  The app also serves as an on-campus guide by providing directions for parking, building-to-building walking directions, history and information on each building and campus locale.  It also is a tool to help prospective students apply to UNH and explore their future lives on campus. The Explore UNH mobile guide is divided into five categories: Welcome, Visit, Apply, Explore, and Connect.   Each section was carefully crafted to highlight UNH and allow the admissions department to be with a prospective candidate prior to and after their campus visit.  The mobile guide is also ideal for visiting alumni and conference goers to familiarize themselves with the campus.          Explore UNH was published by Smart College Visit, Inc, in partnership with University of New Haven and is available free of charge in the iTunes and Google Play Stores.
