With AT&T Campus Guide, on-the-go students, faculty, alumni and staff can access campus information right on their smartphones. Community members can check out upcoming events, catch up on university sports scores and read course materials.
AT&T is stated to be the first carrier to offer this type of mobile platform for higher education institutions. The AT&T Campus Guide app, which users can download for free, works with any service provider and on most major mobile operating systems.
AT&T is working with DubMeNow, which works for mobilizing higher education, to bring AT&T Campus Guide to schools all over the U.S.[ Also Read: The Rattrap Novel for Kids on Twitter ]
Colleges and universities using AT&T Campus Guide can customize the app, adding school colors and banners to make it their own. And with its easy set-up, AT&T Campus Guide is ready to go in a matter of weeks rather than months, the company claims.

Courses: Students can connect with classmates and professors in real-time using AT&T Campus Guide, viewing grades, assignments, announcements and detailed class information.
Events: The events calendar on AT&T Campus Guide provides important dates and times for campus happenings.
