Apps you need if you're new to UofG

By CGordon 27 Jun 2022

Are you new to the University of Glasgow? Well, first of all, welcome! 

This article will guide you through the most useful apps to have as a UofG Student.

UofG Life App

The UofG Life App is a lifesaver while you're on campus.

Firstly, it has your class timetable on it including room numbers. You don't need to worry about printing or carrying around a paper copy! You can also synch this with your personal calendar.

You can also receive updates and text alerts of late timetable changes - there's nothing more annoying than getting to a class only to find it's been cancelled or the room number has changed.

It also has amazing map features to help you navigate the campus and check out the physical access features of locations and accessible routes. You can use your current location to get directions to your destination, or you can get directions from a specific building to another - it even includes our off campus student residences. It also provides detailed directions of how to get to a specific room within the building.

You can also check out nearby facilities and how many spots are left for studying in the Library!

SafeZone App

SafeZone is an incredibly useful app that all students at UofG should have downloaded to their phones.

You can use the SafeZone app 24 hours per day on campus, at our accommodation residences, or anywhere in between, to alert campus security to any incidents.

Moodle Mobile App

The Moodle Mobile App lets you see your Moodle modules. Moodle is where you'll find all of your course information including course handbooks, assessment information, course resources, etc. You'll be using it a lot and being able to access it quickly on the go is great.
