The popular smartphone app adds additional campus-friendly features for students on the go.

New modules include:

  • eSuds – Look up the status and availability of the washers and dryers in the residence halls.
  • Social Media – Connect with NIU’s official social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.
  • Catalogs – Access mobile-friendly versions of the undergraduate and graduate catalogs.
  • Tech Guide – Find information on copiers, email, virus protection, wi-fi and more.

The new version also features an updated design with dark grey replacing the red background.

“All of the modules bring information that students can use right to their fingertips. We’re expecting the eSuds component to be pretty popular with students who live in the residence halls,” said Jennice O’Brien, director of Web Communications.

The app is free to download and is available now in the Apple and Android app stores. An update to the Blackberry version should be available shortly.
