Let students give you the information you need. Surveys & Polls have been an important part of Student Governments and Campuses for decades – we’re just making it a little easier. Create as many Surveys or Polls as you want in your app and let students select the choices you’ve given for every question - or write in their own answer. A great tool to gather statistics regarding what changes, updates or things they would like to see done - or how they felt about a past event.View PDF Documentation Request More Information

Once you've given us the information we need (logo's, congress member list, constitution, and so on) it takes about 7 days to get it all finished up.
Our fee does not cover Apple ($99) and Google ($25) accounts, which should be purchased by your Student Government in order to keep your name under the app.
No problem! Sometimes splitting an app between a few campus organizations just makes sense - we'd be happy to do this at no additional cost.
Yes! If you meet the criteria of a "small school" (less than 1000 students) we do have a few discount offerings for you to take advantage of, ask us!
We love building Student Government websites! Our websites cost $1000 for the first year and $500 every year after for upkeep. It takes about a week to finish it all up!
Glad you asked! There are two ways to push updates to your app: one, email us, we'll get it done within 48 hours, or two, login to our student portal to do it yourself!
We get these questions all the time, and usually, it's yes - not a problem, we work with multiple campus based services to make integrating them into your app go smoothly.
Never - you can update your app as much as you want, students can download the app for free as many times as the want. We absolutely hate limitations, you're covered!
Guidebook will cost you $6,500 a year.
That's a hefty price for an app! This is the highest package they offer at for $6500 a year, this package allows you to have your own branded app - cheaper packages offered just give you a "spot" in their own app, something that's not truly yours. Campus Orb not only provides every single service GuideBook does at it's highest priced package, but we offer it all for a lower price then their smallest priced package ($1750/y). Now that says something! (reference)
OrgSync will cost you $10,000 a year. *
The price above is a little misleading: it's really $30,000, OrgSync will lock you into a three year contract. That's $10,000 a year. OrgSync is the main reason we offer contactless packages. Why? We genuinely believe that if we make you a product and offer you a service that actually works (while getting students involved), we don't need to "lock" you in - we'll see you again next year when you renew our contract! We proudly offer all mobile services that OrgSync offers at a lower price. For folks already locked in, we can easily integrate OrgSync into your app!
Collegiate Link will cost you $9,500 a year. *
Although the Collegiate Link services offers a Web Portal that differs from what Campus Orb offers - their mobile app services have to be purchased alongside and do not come as a separate package. As always, Campus Orb offers everything CL does at a more economical price for your Campus or Student Government. Are you already locked in with Collegiate Link? No problem! We can connect those services with your Campus Orb powered app at no additional cost!
