The Assumption University Mobile App is a convenient and comprehensive information resource that enhances the Assumption experience for faculty, staff and students.
Assumption is pleased to announce the launch of AU Mobile, Assumption’s first mobile application. The immediate use of the free “app” is to provide a convenient and accessible means for students to make reservations to attend Mass, enjoy meals in Taylor Dining Hall, schedule a time to work out in the Plourde Recreation Center and in the coming weeks, reserve time to study in the d’Alzon Library. As additional modules are added, the app will continue to evolve into a comprehensive information resource for students, faculty and staff linking them to important resources for members of the campus community. (See the FAQ below for more information.)
How to Download the App
- Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
- Open the app
- Be sure to allow for push notifications to receive important University news and information.
- Choose the appropriate persona (Student or Faculty & Staff)
AU Reserve - Fall Semester Reservation System
Given the Commonwealth's guidelines on de-densification of churches, dining facilities, libraries and exercise facilities, the University partnered with Modo Labs to develop a first-of-its-kind reservation system. Each day, students may reserve times to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner in Taylor Dining Hall for the current and next day. Students may also reserve a seat in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit for Sunday Masses. (Reservations are not required for Daily Mass.) The AU Reserve module also includes a link to IM Leagues where students may reserve a time to use equipment in the state-of-the-art Plourde fitness facility. By the end of August, the University will add a module for students to reserve a time to use the library.
The University developed this module to provide students, faculty and staff with a convenient resource for University operations amid COVID-19. This module features the University's Pathway to Fall plan, tips on how to prepare to be screened to access campus and links to services for food delivery. (As a reminder, only students may use dining facilities.) The COVID-19 module also features links to Medicat, the system students, faculty and staff use to check-in for testing or participate in the required daily symptom tracing.
Given the seriousness and importance of the new safety regulations, there is also a link to compliance information where members of the community can inquire about student, faculty member or staff cooperation with the plan.
Academic Resources (Student Persona Only)
The University provides to students a wealth of recourses as they begin or continue upon a journey of exploration that combines courses in students' areas of greatest interest with our strategically designed core curriculum. This enables students to develop in-depth understanding in their field and timeless skills that are coveted by employers in every industry. This module in the app provides access to information about the University's majors and minors, Brightspace, Webadvisor, dual degree programs, Assumption's Rome Campus, experiential learning opportunities and the Academic Support Center.
Comprehensive University Calendar
Given the many events occurring on campus (and virtually) and the many calendars in use throughout the community, the AU Mobile app includes a comprehensive calendar feature that includes all University events. Information on student programming, University events and the Academic Calendar can be found in the Calendar module.
The app also includes a feature that allows you to bookmark events, text or email to a friend information about an event, or, with your permission, add selected events to the calendar on your mobile device.
Students, curious about the Taylor Dining Hall menu? AU Mobile also includes an easily accessible menu for the primary dining hall. When Charlie's opens, we'll add a link to online ordering.
A new academic building, new academic programs, exciting internship opportunities and students who use their Assumption education to impact the world around them. There's always something exciting happening at Assumption University. The news module will help you stay up-to-date with the latest from Assumption.
More to Come
AU Mobile officially launched on Tuesday, August 18 to provide students with an easy and convenient way to make Mass, dining hall and fitness center reservations. Know that we'll continue to develop new modules to enhance the Assumption experience and create a comprehensive University resource for our community. Have an idea? Let the app team know.
