On February 28, 2013, UBC IT will be decommissioning the my.ubc.ca web portal due to an aging infrastructure and lack of vendor support for a mobile version. The site will remain as a static link page, but students, faculty and staff will no longer be able to sign in with their CWL to access the myUBC applications.
To meet the mobility needs of students, staff and faculty, UBC IT is introducing the m.ubc.ca mobile website as an alternative to the myUBC web portal. With the increased amount of smartphone and tablet use on campus, the m.ubc.ca website is a more streamlined and accessible option for users—providing event listings, online library access, staff and faculty directory, and an interactive campus map. Users will also be able to download the iOs and Android Native APP version of the m.ubc.ca website on their mobile devices.
- Decommission the myUBC Web Portal due to aging infrastructure and lack of vendor support.
- Meet mobility expectations of staff, students and faculty on campus by providing the m.ubc.ca mobile website and native APP as an alternative to the myUBC Web Portal.
- Provide a static link page for those who wish to continue using the my.ubc.ca website.
