Mobile & web app that helps students find campus study spaces
SpaceScout™ allows any student with an iOS device or access to a Web browser to quickly and easily locate campus study spaces that meet their needs. Students can locate spaces by skimming a map, or by specifying search criteria: type of space, capacity, hours available, whether the space can be reserved, location, noise level, lighting, learning resources (whiteboard, etc.), and proximity to food/coffee. Photos of each space help students choose exactly what they’re looking for. For popular computing labs, SpaceScout also displays real-time information about computer availability.
The app currently includes over 200 spaces on the UW-Seattle campus and 70 spaces at UW-Tacoma. New spaces are constantly being added, and will include the UW-Bothell campuses in the future. With building renovations, remodels, and upgrades continually changing the landscape of learning resources on campus, SpaceScout™ provides a single place to go for up-to-date information on spaces that can help students accomplish their work.
