Mobile App

All members of the University community — from incoming freshmen and their parents to our industry partners and alumni — are encouraged to download Philadelphia University's mobile app.

An interactive calendar, athletics scores and schedules, courses, a campus map*, photos, video and more are just a few of the app's many features.

Need to track the Ram Van? Our app's TRANSIT module will show you the current location of the shuttle and how long it will take to the next stop. Want to order from the Common Thread Express? Load up your CAMPUS CARD with funds and then click on DINING.

Get NEWS, find contact info for faculty and staff in a handy DIRECTORY and even check COURSES that will be offered next semester. The Philadelphia University mobile app also links directly to the new and improved mobile-friendly University website.

A complete list of features appears below.

* An additional map tool, available to iPhone users only, is an “augmented reality” that uses both the iPhone’s GPS and compass to identify locations on campus by pointing the phone in the direction of any on-campus buildings. The mode, which can be accessed by clicking the symbol next to “Current Location” in the map section of the app, can help the user find buildings on campus and determine how long it will take to walk to them.
