Stay connected, get course information, and find events while you study abroad with the Umbra App, now available on both the Apple Store and Google Play!
Through the app, you can get in touch with friends, professors, and Umbra staff, access your class syllabi and readings, check out local maps and discounts, share photos of your travels, and more. Maps come complete with important locations in Perugia already marked, as well as our insider recommendations for museums, festivals, and restaurants throughout Italy! You can also submit both Independent Travel and Housing Maintenance Forms, as well as sign up for Umbra-sponsored activities – all on your phone.
Additionally, should an incident happen in Europe during your stay, the Umbra staff will send out a Safety Check-In alert via the app. The alert will provide you with information about the incident and steps to take to ensure your safety. You can then respond to the alert with either “I’m Safe,” or “Request Assistance,” should you be near or affected by the incident. We can then respond appropriately, as well as notify your home institution of your status.
We here at Umbra look forward to making your time abroad safer, more convenient, and even more enjoyable, so download the app and let us know what you think!
