This page provides information about the use of mobile devices at Geneseo and their applications.
Geneseo Mobile App
The Geneseo Mobile App provides access to resources including notifications, online directory, events, news, campus map, and more. It can also help you find other Geneseo apps.
Canvas Mobile App
The Canvas by Instructure app is the mobile version of Canvas that helps you stay current with your courses anywhere you go. Download the Canvas by Instructure app on Android and iOS devices.
RAVE Guardian Safety App
SUNY Geneseo has enhanced its current blue light system by launching Geneseo Guardian (powered by Rave Guardian), a free mobile app that turns your smartphone into a personal safety device. University Police encourages all students, faculty and staff to heighten their personal safety and the safety of their friends by downloading the free app.
By downloading the app on your mobile phone, you can also invite friends and family to join your network as your “Guardians.” You can then request one or more of your Guardians to virtually walk with you on or off campus. It’s like having an emergency blue light system and a trusted friend with you at all times.
Geneseo Mobile Website
Geneseo webpages are responsive. That is, they adjust according to the width of the screen they are being viewed on.
Geneseo Wireless Network
Connecting to the Geneseo wireless network saves on data usage and allows faster downloads. We recommend that you connect your device to our secure wireless network eduroam. Not only is this the most secure way to be online, it also saves your credentials so you don't have to log in every time you access your device.
