When UF’s Gainesville campus closed during Hurricane Irma, the
UFApps service still allowed students to complete course assignments and projects. In fact, UFApps was utilized by students and faculty every hour during the September 8-13 closure!

There were 8,942 total UFApps logins over the six days that Hurricane Irma impacted academics and campus services, with a third of those logins coming from outside of Gainesville/Alachua County. The top three apps used during #Irma were MATLAB (4,172 app launches), MS Word (3,279 app launches), and Serif DrawPlus X8 (2,349 app launches).

UFApps provides students and faculty access to software applications on any computing device–laptops, tablets, desktops, and smartphones–from any internet-enabled location, at any time. The list of more than 130 applications currently available is published here: Do you have a question or need help using UFApps? Contact the UF Computing Help Desk (132 Hub, 352-392-HELP/4357,
