How will you be notified of an emergency on campus? What number should you call if you need to report an emergency? Is there someone who can walk you to your car or to another building after dark? SecurUO, the University of Ottawa safety app, has been launched and delivers a range of features and information to enhance your safety on campus. It is free and available in the App Store and Google Play now.
The ability to contact and communicate with others electronically is important to many of us. This is why the Office 365 project to improve the central email Exchange service for employees is so fitting for the University.
