Rocky Shield is the official safety app of the University of North Carolina at Asheville.
If you're in a dangerous situation, use the Rocky Shield application to quickly and easily contact university safety forces.
Rocky Shield also allows you to:
-Send text messages, as well as photos and videos of crime tips and suspicious behavior directly to university safety forces.
-Use the FriendWatch feature to create a peer-to-peer safety network. Walking to class alone and want some additional safety? Use FriendWatch to allow your friends and family to track your location during that activity.
-View campus shuttle schedules.
-Access campus resources, such as the student handbook, and emergency procedures directly through the app.
-View a crime map which displays recent incidents on campus.
