Stay connected to the University of Memphis any time, any place through the University’s
new free mobile app. The app provides at-your-fingertips information for current and
prospective students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends.
Among the offerings are campus tours, news and events, integrated GPS maps and a phone
directory. Under the My Campus feature, students, faculty and staff can view class
schedules, grades and campus card balances, course offerings and class rosters. There
are links to the Blue Line, Career Services, Facebook, the U of M Libraries, alumni
news and Memphis attractions. Users can even learn the words to the Tiger Fight Song
and view U of M videos and photo archives.
Access to account-sensitive information requires a valid University UUID and password,
but most components are available to the public.
The new app is available for download on both Apple and Android platforms by searching
for “University of Memphis.”
The app was developed by Straxis Technology in conjunction with the U of M’s divisions
of Information Technology and Communications, Public Relations and Marketing.
