What could be added to the UAB app to make your life on campus easier?

UAB wants to hear your ideas for the new UAB app, which launched last fall and is designed to help students, staff and guests get around campus, get hired and get things done.

A new SPARK campaign seeks ideas from students, faculty and staff about what features to add to the app to make it more functional for everyone on campus.

Just log in to the SPARK campaign, submit your idea, or vote or comment on other ideas.

Those ideas that rise to the top in voting will likely get priority as the development of the app continues.

The UAB app already includes a campus map, directory and news and sports headlines; integrations with Canvas and BlazerNET, and links to IT services, Hill Center hours, campus dining and more.

Future plans include adding integrations for the B-Sync calendar and checking your OneCard balance.

Potential new features include academic adviser scheduling, functionality to move or remove tiles, and making tuition payments, as well as registration for events or classroom attendance.

What would you like to see in the app? Laundry or printer availability? A parking map? Library services?
