The University has launched a new mobile service that enables students, tourists, and the wider public of Oxfordshire to see what the city has to offer.

Users will have access to information such as transport schedules, Oxford library books stacked and, where the nearest pub is.

The service is available on most 3G capable mobile phones and can be accessed at http://m.ox.ac.uk.

The initiative is already proving popular, information released by the Oxford Information Centre shows that during its first week the site received an average of 200-300 hits an hour and peaked at 1500 hits.

The project is part of the OUCS’s Project Erewhon which is to move into permanent service from next April.
