SF State Mobile App. Latest Version Released

ITS Site Mobile Update

Information Technology Services (ITS) is pleased to announce the latest release (version 2.6) of the SF State Mobile App. With student success and retention in mind, we have integrated the Campus Solutions Advising Center to enable Educational Opportunity Program advisers, who use tablet devices for both in office and remote advising, to more easily assist students.

As the fall semester approaches, with new students starting to arrive on campus, the app now incorporates links to many campus resources so students can access information and services while on-the-go, including Housing (includes move-in day info.), Bookstore, and the Print Shop. In addition, this release provides easy access to the CalFresh supplemental food program application as well as the ability to sign up for the SF State Food Pantry, a partnership between Associated Students and the SF-Marin Food Bank that was piloted last spring. 

To help new students better navigate campus, we have added indoor maps showing accessible entrances, elevators, stairs, and restrooms for the Student Services Building, the first two floors of the Administration Building, and J. Paul Leonard Library. More buildings will be added in future releases. 

ITS could not do this alone. We count on our campus partners to help prioritize, review, and test each mobile app release. We would like to thank members of the Mobile App Advisory Group: Gabriela Alvarenga, Jill Anthes, Brian Beatty, Avi Chandiramani, Doris Fendt, Heather Hall, Andrew Lok, Dilon Reynolds, Andrew Roderick, Elizabeth Smith, and Sameer Verma. We would also like to thank those that helped review and test some of the new features, including Arlene Bugayong from EOP and Frank Fasano and Russell Kilday-Hicks from Facilities. 

We encourage faculty and staff to help us improve the app by downloading and providing feedback through the app’s feedback option. The app is available for both Android and iPhone and is free to download from the App Store or Google Play by searching "SF State Mobile."
