New UT app helps students in multiple ways

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

University of Toledo students now have the entire university at their fingertips with the new free ‘My UT' mobile app.

Students can download the app to any smart device to interact with fellow students, faculty and advisors. It was created by the information technology (IT) department, and its features were all suggested by students.

The app can help students access bus routes, job opportunities, events and more. Campus maps are also available, and students can get walking directions to their classrooms.

"For our international students, this app is really going to help them get to know the campus more, and I think it's going to be a great help and benefit to the students," said UT Freshman Omar Sedige.

School officials say each year, improvements will be made to the app to keep it relevant, and IT staff will use student feedback to see what features should be added or removed.
