Custom-built tools for UW students!

In an effort to help students accomplish their work, we’re spreading the word about three mobile apps built by UW-IT in response to student needs: SpaceScout, MyUW Mobile, and Notify.UW.

  • SpaceScout helps students find campus study spaces that meet specific criteria, and has just released a new feature–real-time display of computer availability. No more waiting around for a computer!
  • MyUW Mobile gives students on-the-go access to information they need most: class schedule and location, textbook info, and husky card balances.
  • Notify.UW lets students sign up to be notified (via email or text) about openings in specific courses.

You can help students learn about these apps by distributing the text below in an email message or announcement on your department’s web page. Traffic on the apps is especially heavy at the start of the quarter, as students adjust to new schedules, add and drop classes, and find their way around campus. Your “just-in-time” reminder can be a great help to students.

If you know of other advisers who might be willing to help us get the word out, please feel free to forward this email.

We appreciate your assistance, and encourage you to check out the apps as well. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Many thanks,
