How do I view the Calendar in the Student app on my iOS device?

You can view your course calendars in the Student app. The Student app calendar only displays events for courses you have favorited from the Dashboard.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.


  • If you want to view Canvas events in the native iOS calendar, you can also subscribe to the Canvas calendar feed and view Canvas events along with your personal calendars.
  • Students cannot sign up for Scheduler appointments or create events in the app.
