oneCampus - Intelligent Campus Solution | Nathaniel Read

When 03/2019 Type Software
oneCampus is an application for the University of Hull's students designed to centralise Student Identity and Services, making essential University services easier for students to access. We started building this project at the JISC Digifest Hackathon 2019.

oneCampus was a project built on our own needs as students, and our dissatisfaction at the quality of the existing University of Hull app, as it provided basic webviews and not interactive access to services.

It was developed by an organisation used by many different Universities across the UK, most of which are considering replacing it. As first hand users, we thought we could deliver a better integrated service that students would actually like using.

The project started by looking at the onboarding process, and ensuring that when users joined the instution they could be issued a one-stop pathway to enrolment and allowing them to simply set up eduroam on their devices, set up local email on their device, add a virtual version of their student card to Apple Wallet and allow simple sign in with Face or Touch ID.

Tools Used
  • iOS App written in Swift, for speed and full native access
  • Web Backend and API written in C# .NET Core



We still see oneCampus as a tool that would make students lives significantly easier and more interactive, and hope to make it more widely available. We have timetable integration, lecture and session rescheduling notifications, directory services, bus times, basic Canvas VLE and PC Finder integration.

It was really cool to develop something that got such positive reactions from students, and had potential to make both staff and student’s lives easier.
