Quinnipiac University

A next-gen higher ed student portal to improve functionality, UX design, brand governance, and most importantly audience engagement



Quinnipiac University’s (QU) MyQ Intranet portal serves over 10,000 students, faculty and staff across three campuses and more than 100 degree programs. The legacy portal was a Sharepoint application that lacked intuitive navigation, a thoughtful UX and robust features that would allow the portal to be used to its fullest potential. QU partnered with R2i to redesign and develop MyQ to institute a seamless brand experience, modern user experience, and community-centered functionality driving user generated content.


By combining enhanced UX design, content strategy, persona research, search functionality, and marketing cloud integration, R2i evolved MyQ from a static content repository into a tailored digital workspace for QU’s diverse users. The new portal offers intuitive navigation and personalized experiences to faculty, staff, current and new student audience segments, giving QU a scalable, digital tool that maximizes content engagement and builds stronger, more impactful relationships.
