Dorm was developed to connect college students with each other in order to build lasting and meaningful relationships. With the “Dorm App” college students can connect with each other based on their shared interests, hobbies & academics.
Our main objective was to create a mobile dorm-like experience which allows students to build & share their profile with other students within their university and surrounding communities, this will give students an opportunity to message connect with each other directly. The Dorm also comes with a general forum page that allows them to see posts from all their connections.
What we did?
We gave priority to an UI desirable to students and a seamless flow that will allow students to connect with other students easily based on their common interests
