Student Events

Find great things to do with other students.

Meet new people in between classes, study for your next midterm with other students, or relax after it's all over. Maybe you'll find some people on the floor below you playing Smash Bros, or some people out at the rec center playing basketball. No matter what you're looking for, you can look to Mochila's Student Events screen to see what's going on around campus.

Bus Routes

Going somewhere? Get there sooner.

On lots of campuses, bus routes can get pretty confusing. Mochila brings you access to all of the routes on your campus, and lets you see them overlaid on your phone's native maps. You can easily figure out which routes are the most useful for you and your schedule, and favorite it for quick access directly from Mochila's home screen. When available, bus stops even provide a table of times to help you plan ahead. Just one tap pulls up the full schedule for the day.



Find anything on campus. Really.

There's a ton of buildings around, but do you know what's in them? Search by name or abbreviation and discover where everything is hidden. Check out an interactive map, and see the building in relation to the rest of campus and where you are right now. Easily jump to information about bus routes, computers labs, dining halls, and college offices inside each and every building on your campus.



Great food is moments away.

Whether you're hungry for lunch, breakfast, or dinner you can always find a place nearby serving food, or one of your campuses convenient retail locations. With one-tap access to the current dining menus, you can easily find that dining hall across campus serving a homemade thanksgiving dinner. Or check ahead and find where to meet friends for breakfast, with location info and hours.

Student Life

Discover what your campus has to offer.

Did you know most schools have tons of resources available to students? Things such as legal services for students, a student health center, and programs aimed at helping students adjust to college life are common examples, but plenty of people are unaware of how to use them. Find dozens of student life options ranging from services like those, to recreational sports and get more information so you can get involved.


Computer Labs

Focus on whatever you need to do.

Computer labs offer a quiet place to study, take exams, write papers, or do anything else you need to for your classes. Whether you just want to check the hours of your favorite lab or find a new one nearby just to print your notes before class, Mochila makes it easy. You can even view a map showing every general access computer lab near you, with colored pins to indicate if they're open or closed.
