The new system has been developed in-house at Herts and as part of this we've imported and mapped over 3,500 locations, written over 28,000 lines of code and released the map as both a website and update to the Herts Mobile app - in just over 3 months!
There's still lots to do, and we welcome all of your feedback so please share your thoughts. Feedback can be sent directly within maps, just tap the feedback button and we’ll get right on it.
Some of the improvements include:
- An updated map, with the ability for us to be more reactive to ongoing changes across our campus estate.
- Blue dot positioning with heading indicator, to easily see the direction you're traveling in.
- Bluetooth support for precise positioning inside supported buildings.
- Improved performance and load times.
- Easily share locations.
There's still lots more to come as we transition to the new system. If you need it, our legacy wayfinding system is still available at https://wayfinding.herts.ac.uk or find it in the More tab of Herts Mobile under ‘Wayfinding – (Legacy)’. Please note our legacy system may be inaccurate for a number of locations across campus as we transition to our new experience.

For accessibility information on university building and spaces please see the University of Hertfordshire Accessibility Guide on the AccessAble website and the AccessAble app (available on iOS and Android) to help you easily and safely plan your journey around campus and remove the uncertainty of travelling to new places.
The Access Guides provide accurate, up-to-date venue access information on buildings, teaching spaces, libraries, sports facilities, accommodation residencies and bus routes across the University’s three sites: College Lane Campus, de Havilland Campus and Bayfordbury Campus.
Each guide contains specific details and photographs to help you plan your journey to and around the campus, including information on parking facilities, accessible toilets, step-free access, ramp sizes and weight limits, hearing loops, Braille signage, tactile paving, and walking distances.
In future, the University aims to integrate the guides into our Herts Mobile app, giving students and staff access to all the information they need in one place.
