The PSU Mobile App – A Must Have!

The PSU mobile app is a one-stop shop for your PSU needs and a must have. The free app has extensive features, including a campus directory, event and listing calendars, library services and various other useful information for students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors.

The features that I use the most are news, photos and the library services. They are cool and here’s why.

News: I get to know the latest happenings at PSU via the news feature. Updated almost on a daily basis, the news feature highlights some of the cool events that are due in the coming days.

Photos: The photo feature enables me to breathe PSU because it sources information from “PSU on Instagram” and categorizes photos under “This year at PSU”, “Best of Portland State” and “Campus Life.” I get the sense of belonging to PSU as I see the happy faces featured every day in the photo gallery, making me happy to be a part of the university.

Library services: The library feature, although not completely integrated into the PSU mobile app, is another cool feature. It lets you book a study room directly from the app—a must for dead week— and also enables catalog searches for information.

PSU is big and I do get lost at times. Thanks to the maps feature in the mobile app, I am able to locate the building that I am looking for fairly easily. The feature tracks your location and helps navigate through the university.

The D2L integration is the next thing due for the mobile app, but it does have enough cool features to make it worth it for your mobile. Have you downloaded the mobile app?
