I am looking for a word or phrase that can be used to represent or include all students affairs or activities. I want to provide an online service for students such as (and/or including) student enrolments, payments and records keeping, etc.

I have thought of the Student Office, Student Registry and Student Records but unsure of the best to use. Many thanks.

  • On EL&U, requests for words or phrases should include some textual context. It doesn't need to be a work of art, but it should be something more extensive than a heading. A sentence or paragraph with "___" as a placeholder would be fine. – Lawrence Nov 1 '18 at 12:01
  • Your own examples (Student Office, Student Registry and Student Records) are all fine, really. Some places use "Student Affairs" or "Student Services". There is no one right answer. – Mark Beadles Nov 1 '18 at 16:55

You could maybe say the student hub

A definition of hub:

the effective centre of an activity, region, or network.

I feel like this my apply to you. Hope it helps :)

  • Thanks, @Wool, yes, indeed. Does the term hub has any connotation on the informality in usage? For example, would one expect to go the Student Hub to make payment for the course enrolment? I guess it could be just different perspectives for different people. – LeKhoi Nov 3 '18 at 0:07

This sounds like a Bursar's Office.

Bursar: A person who manages the financial affairs of a college or school.

Typically a bursar will also hold all the students records because the first thing they check before any information is released is if you have paid the tuition fees!

  • Thanks, I learned a new word :) I think the scope is limited to financial only. – LeKhoi Nov 3 '18 at 0:00
