CarolinaGO, the official University mobile app for UNC-Chapel Hill, is now used by some 10,000 members of the campus community.
The app enables students, faculty and staff to easily access resources such as dining options, a campus map, walking directions, bus routes and campus events. It also is the only native mobile platform for Sakai and ConnectCarolina. Through this mobile version of ConnectCarolina, students can conveniently add or drop classes, view class schedules, change emergency contacts and view basic financial aid information.
Launched in October 2014, the app was created through collaboration between a small student team and Information Technology Services. CarolinaGO is run and managed by the current student team of founding member Diana Dayal as well as Brent Comstock and Allie Polk.
ITS and the student team continue to work together to add helpful features to CarolinaGO, based on campus feedback. The goal is to continue to attract new users, including from each incoming class.
The app is designed primarily for students, but all members of the University community and visitors to campus will find it a helpful tool.
Users can download the mobile apps for both iOS and Android devices:
CarolinaGO is available for Android and iOS devices only. A web version is available at m.unc.edu.
