Our Story

Started in 2015, USThing is a student-developed, all-in- one mobile app that aims at providing a more convenient access to IT services offered by The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology for (FBS), Student Information System (SIS), Library Room Booking system and the Career Center Job Board, and provides tools that facilitate students’ learning experiences including next lesson notification, calculation of GPA goals, Common Core course search and matching of students’ timetables to find common time slots for group projects and meetings.  New functions are added from time to time to ensure the app provides an all-round experience that meets the students’ needs. In August 2016, USThing began its collaboration with HKUST and its internal units to ensure the app provides the best user experience for all students, in the hopes of ultimately expanding the services to the entire HKUST community. If you have any ideas for the app, feel free to contact us at usthing@ust.hk or through our Facebook page.
