Pocket Points selects buildings based on their academic value. Residence halls and recreation centers are excluded. If you are in an academic building and are still seeing the message that you must be on campus to earn points, start a live chat by taping the green chat icon and let us know what school you go to and what building you are in.
If you are not in an academic building and you have an iPhone, you can earn points by using Goal Mode. If you have an Android, you will be able to earn points off campus soon with Goal Mode.
