Timely, Targeted Resources for Transitioning Your Campus

Prior to the pandemic, colleges and universities were adopting new thinking, tools, and technologies to meet student expectations and safely conduct business. Our short video highlights how schools are already making contactless connections.

Now that COVID-19 impacts all aspects of campus life, contactless transitions happen even more rapidly. We've created this resource for schools to explore new technologies easier and make campuses safer. You'll find:

  • A step-by-step guide to adopting contactless technologies in our ebook, Your Guide to Creating a Contactless Campus
  • Updates on products with contactless commerce and credential functionality and benefits
  • Quick links to touchnet.com news, blogs, podcasts, and webinars
  • Partner news
  • Curated content and more

We all look forward to moving beyond the pandemic. Until then, visit this page often to stay informed of the latest, most relevant information and news for colleges and universities.
