IlliniSpaces is a web app that helps students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign find campus study spaces and computer labs that meet specific criteria. It can be used on a phone, tablet, or desktop. IlliniSpaces is also available as a mobile app on iOS systems. Both the web and mobile apps currently include over 100 spaces on campus. Building renovations, remodels, and upgrades are constantly changing the campus landscape, and IlliniSpaces provides up-to-date information on the spaces that help students work.
