How to download the Columbia Safe app

Columbia College is pleased to announce the launch of the Columbia Safe app for your mobile device, which can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store or Google Play app stores.

Columbia Safe is a multi-functional safety, support and information app to further supplement and expand our student and staff supports on the campus.

This app includes:

  1. Friend Walk - a tool that will help your friends and family to ensure you get too and from school, work and other events safely.
  2. Emergency contacts to reach campus Security, 911 and the VPD in the case of emergency and non-emergency events
  3. Mental, physical and sexual health resources, as well as appointment booking for Student Advising
  4. Push notifications in the event of severe weather closures or emergencies to provide instant information to all app users about the nature of an on-campus emergency, whether you are on- or off-campus. These text messages will not be charged to the recipient.
  5. Self check-in, in the event of an emergency to let the College know if you're okay or need help.
  6. Live scrolling of the Student Services twitter feed to keep you up to date on information regarding a wide range of issues.

If you have any questions, please contact SSA@columbiacollege.ca for further information. We encourage everyone to download the app and take some time to explore it.
