The Illinois App

The Illinois App is the official app of the University of Illinois. The project is a collaborative effort across many departments and units to bring the campus services you use in one location and help you stay connected to what’s going on at the University.

The Illinois App is powered by Rokwire.

Rokwire Initiative

ROKWIRE is an interdisciplinary initiative at the University of Illinois. We are building an open-source platform for mobile devices to enable the smart, healthy communities of tomorrow. Our goal is simple: Rokwire exist to enhance human capabilities — to create healthier, safer, more equitable, sustainable places; foster better decision-making; and fuel innovation for all members of our community. Our open-source platform combines multiple streams of data and sensor technologies and integrates that information through artificial intelligence to present user personalized, up to the minute support for meeting their goals. Our approach to privacy is revolutionary. Users set privacy and corresponding functionality in the App at levels they prefer. And we keep only the data they permit us to keep. We are making the University of Illinois and the surrounding communities of Champaign-Urbana the
leading innovation center and testbed for new smart, healthy technologies and services. Together, we can create a model for smart, healthy, sustainable communities that others will want to follow.
