Illinois App, Viewing your building entry status
How to view your building status in the Illinois App
The Illinois app is a student's companion to connect with the campus experience, services, and events.
Get the Illinois app in the Google Play and Apple App stores.
The Illinois app can be used to view your building access status.
Steps to check your building access in the Illinois app
Open the Illinois app and connect with your NetID. Note that you must use your NetID, not a phone number, to sign in.
On the Illinois app home screen, tap "Building Access".
Your Illini ID will appear including your Building Access badge.
Displaying Building Access requires you to do the following:
- Run Illinois app version 2.8.1 or later.
- Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi or cellular data.
- Sign in to the app with your NetID.
The option to Connect Your NetID will not appear unless your app's Privacy Level is set to at least 4. The slider to change this can be found in the app's settings by tapping the purple Privacy Center button, then Manage and Understand Your Privacy.
If you have questions about the Building Access function, or the Illinois app in general, contact the Technology Services Help Desk at email@example.com | 217-244-7000.
