We believe College is a time for making new friends, finding people who share similar interests, and discovering new opportunities to connect from clubs to study groups, sports, and more. Which is more reason why you are going to enjoy using this wonderful product

- Campus-only News Feed: Campus is a college email-verified space designed for students to get updates from classmates, groups, and events in a college-specific feed. Students can create study groups, plan virtual concerts, or ask for advice with college-only Groups and Events.
- Campus directory: College is about finding your people, so we created a classmates’ directory to make it easy to find and meet new people. Like in the early days when Facebook was a college-only network, students can find classmates by class, major, year, and more.
- New ways to chat: Campus Chats are real-time chat rooms. Students can create chat rooms for their dorm, clubs, or any other groups they’re part of within Campus.
How It Works
FB Campus is a dedicated section of the Facebook app designed for students, with a Campus profile that’s different from their main Facebook profile. To create a Campus profile, all students need is their college email and graduation year. Other information such as their major, classes, hometown, and minor is optional.
Once a Campus profile is set up, students can discover Groups and Events unique to their school, and connect with classmates who share similar interests. When content is shared on Campus, only people within Campus will see it.
