upCurrents is a personal updater for things UP (University of the Philippines). It automatically gathers UP-related news, updates, RSS feeds, videos, event calendars (music, sports, arts, academic). upCurrents also plays UP-FM, an online music radio of the university, and DZUP. More info: dilc.info/currents || Support: dilc.info/help || Facebook.


upCurrents now collects updates from the following sites:

Many UP sites should be included but the challenge is that they're not RSS-ready.

Q & A

  • Will upCurrents replace actual visits to different sites?

No. upCurrents only collects parts of stories found in UP websites. To view the full story, one has to visit the online site concerned. The app encourages access of UP sites used in upCurrents.

  • Why is my unit's update not on upCurrents?

It's possible that your website has no RSS capability. Please coordinate with DILC to remedy the situation.
