University apps for mobile devices

What University apps are available for mobile devices?

Unisafe app

The University’s Safer Community Program launched its Unisafe app in an effort to educate staff, students and visitors to the University on ways they can enhance their personal safety and contribute to building a safe and secure environment.

Students, staff and visitors can use the app to request a security escort to or from campus, and can also access information about campus security services, health services such as counselling, disability liaison and international student support.

The app also includes tips on enhancing personal safety on campus, public transport, in cars, at home and ‘out and about’.

The Unisafe app is available for download via the App Store and Google Play.

You’ll find more information about the University’s Safer Community Program on their website.

EBSCOhost databases and discovery technologies are the most-used, premium online information resources for tens of thousands of institutions worldwide. This free app ensures that users get the most from searching premium EBSCOhost database content, provided courtesy of your library.

Canvas Student LMS app

Canvas Student is an app that allows fast, convenient access to the Canvas LMS from your mobile device. With the Canvas Student app, you will be able to check information, access your subject materials, and perform many tasks from your mobile device without going through an internet browser on a desktop or laptop computer. You will still need to access some features of your subject through a browser. However, the Canvas Student app can save you time and get you into your subject or community quickly.

You can download the Canvas Student app for your device from iTunes or, Google Play. The Canvas Student app is free to use and can be accessed with mobile data or wireless networks. As with other apps, you are responsible for any data transfer charges incurred, so we recommend using WiFi wherever possible.
