Apps you need if you're new to UofG
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.
Team UofG 20/21 App
Although things look a little different this year, use the Team UofG 20/21 app to make the most of your time as a Glasgow student. In addition to information on essentials to know or do before and after you arrive, it includes key dates, links to information, advice and guidance - so it's useful for all students - even if you've been part of Team UofG for a few years now!
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 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.
When you download the app just enter moodle.gla.ac.uk when it asks for the site address.
The UofGSport App gives you access to live and on-demand fitness classes and updates on facilities and services. You can also book your visit through the app and find information about club sports.
Remember if you're a UofG Accommodation resident you get a free full gym membership - simply swipe your student card at the entrance and your membership will be activated.
