Priority Snow Route Plan
UNH Facilities has identified two (2) priority snow/ice removal routes. (View Map Here) These routes will be maintained hourly. It includes sidewalks, building entrances, and Access Van pick-up/drop-off points. Students should make note of these routes as they may differ from usual ones used.
Other sidewalks/areas will continue to be cleared as well; however, they will be cleared less regularly than the “priority routes”. Please be aware of balance, equipment, and other factors that may be affected by snow and ice.
iPod and iPad Apps & Android Apps
Disability Services for Students has put together a listing of several apps available to assist students including:
Ace your classes is a free app that has some features similar to iStudiez Pro. It is a good basic app for organizing your terms, courses and daily calendar but it also has the additional benefit of note-taking with the app.
Vlingo Virtual Assistant: Free Voice Activation for Android phones
