Updates to the UC Mobile App Coming in March

The UC Mobile App is getting a refresh on Thursday, March 1. The updated UC Mobile App will feature a new and more accessible interface. The new environment is built upon a flexible framework that will support increasing functionality over time. The initial launch creates a solid foundation and will support features including:

  • Athletics
  • Campus Safety

In addition units across the university will have the ability to create mobile content in a rich and dynamic environment.

New features to look for soon include:

  • Tours of campus that incorporate photos, audio and video.
