This September, more than 20 colleges and universities are rolling out mobile apps to enhance campus safety. The institutions designed and developed the apps in collaboration with AppArmor, a custom mobile safety platform.

The new apps will host various resources for students, including campus police information and interactive crime maps. Additionally, students can access a panic button and chat feature that alerts authorities of a student's exact location. All the apps feature unlimited mass notifications, geological tracking features and more.

The institutions that will be rolling out apps in the coming weeks include:

AppArmor worked closely with the institutions to design custom apps that meet the needs of each community.

“We love how the AppArmor platform gives us the ability to fully control our own content in real time,” said Dave Bujak, director of emergency management at Florida State University, in a prepared statement. “We’ve built custom sections for special events like the Game Day Guide and Housing Move In Guide.”
