AUC Mobile App

The AUC Mobile application aims to serve main stakeholders: students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The aim of the application is to increase communication and engagement. It is designed to be an intuitive, easy-to-use platform to encourage stakeholders to use every day. The main objective is to enhance the students’ life experience on and off campus through giving access to multiple features and services. The application should help integrate academic and non-academic events/activities beyond the classroom and immerse students in the community.

Visitor Access System

Whether it be for a major production, class project or graduation, AUC is a hub for people. Some of these individuals may not have an ID card but that does not mean they should not be on campus. In an effort to support our community and security teams, we are reimagining the visitor experience at AUC.

Banner is one of our main institutional assets when it comes to providing direct services to all university stakeholders, both present and future. It provides the main interface for software applications for many administrative offices at AUC. We are currently in the process of upgrading this software to better serve our community. As such, our priorities are to ensure better system availability through infrastructure upgrades (physical and virtual) and developer tools to integrate new projects into our university’s software.
