What is meetU? How will it help me?

meetU is not another social network, it is the place for you to learn about what is going on at your school and get the most out of your student experience! The focus is on you and what you care about.

How to Get Started:

Step 1

Download the meetU app to your smartphone - it’s available for all Apple and Android devices!

Step 2

Once you’ve downloaded the app, simply use your official school email address to create an account. You will receive a confirmation email once you’ve done and will just need to validate the account - this will only take a few seconds.

Step 3

Open the app and create your Profile. You can add as much or as little as you want about yourself.

Step 4

Add Tags to your Profile - Tags are simply things that you are interested in or courses that you’re taking, and they drive all your interactions in the app, so don’t forget to add them!

Step 5

Explore! Play around with all the different ways that meetU can show you all the amazing things going on at your school. You can even create and promote your own events using the app.

Tags, Tags, Tags Oh My!

Tagging your profile is key. Any time an event is created that shares one of your Tags, you will get a push notification. Don't disable Push Notifications or you will miss out. We don't send annoying spam pushes, you are only going to be hearing about events you care about, because they match your Tags! If you like Basketball, tag your profile with Basketball and any time an event is created, on or off campus, that also has the Tag of "Basketball" you will get a push notification! Simple.

Personalize

Create a profile, share as little or as much as you like.

Create

Engage

Discover

  • I really appreciate you and other co-founders' work, as an international student, I'm always trying to find my way to get involved in the community and to meet people. Though I might not have much time for social networking recently, I would still love to check out the events near me through this app. I love the feature of "sort by distance/time", which is very convenient to search for an event... Again, thanks for developing such an amazing app. Hopefully more people will find this app to discover more about their life around.
