Exciting new changes to the student room

Notice anything different about us today? Yep, The Student Room has had a lick of paint - and we've got a new look that we're really excited about.


First up, we've changed the logo into something altogether more va-va-voom. Alongside that, there's a much slicker, more user-friendly navigation bar. See it up top? Roll your mouse over it. Go on...we'll wait... How about that!

Like we said, we're really excited about the changes. They're designed to make the site simpler and more fun, and are all summed up by our new strapline: 'where students connect'.

So where has all this suddenly come from? Well, behind the scenes we've been beavering away on this rebrand for the last three months. We talked to students, universities, companies, people who use TSR, people who used to use TSR but kind of drifted away...and we asked them all what they thought made The Student Room special.

Some of the answers that kept coming back made us grin. Others made us feel proud to be involved with this community.

  • People told us how TSR is friendly
  • How it helps students from all sorts of background get access to the information and support they need
  • How its independence is really important so you can get impartial views
  • How it’s fun and welcoming
  • How it gives students a voice
  • How it’s always there when you need it

That's exactly how we want the community to be known and we want to shout about all those brilliant things in everything we do. The new logo and header design you see above are just the start.

We've got more changes coming over the next few months - we'll be sure to keep you posted on those as well. For the time being, find out more about today's changes in the About The Student Room forum - and let us know what you think!
