Harvard University has released Thrive@Harvard, a new mobile application. This app features emergency contacts, health and wellness information, and other University resources available to students. It also contains useful information that students might want to access daily, such as lunch and dinner options at Dudley Café as well as academic and personal resources designed to support the graduate student journey.

“Each year we encourage students to program emergency contact information in their phones, including Harvard University Police Department and Harvard University Health Services,” says Garth McCavana, dean for student affairs. “Now, for students who download the app, they have access to that information right in the palm of their hand.”

Some features include:

  • Campus Map: Explore Harvard’s campuses with a map that includes University buildings
  • People: Search the faculty, staff, and student directory for contact information
  • Events: View GSAS events and add them to your calendar
  • Shuttle Tracker: Access up to the minute information about shuttle schedules and delays
  • Food: Review meal choices at Dudley House and at Longwood Medical Area cafés

“It’s great to browse GSAS events and check to see if my favorite food truck is at the Science Center Plaza during my morning commute,” said Rosanna Picascia, a PhD student in religion.

Thrive@Harvard is available for free download in the both the Apple App Store and Google Play. For more information, please e-mail the GSAS Office of Student Services.
