Dear CSU Faculty, Staff and Students,

Dead phone? No charger?

We have a solution! CSU has entered into a 3-month trial of Oomf phone charging batteries. These batteries have Apple Lightening and micro-USB connectors built in and are free for 24-hours!

Here's how it works;

1. Grab on Oomf at one of 10 campus locations (list below)

  • Blue light = ready to go
  • Red light = charging

2. Select the cord for your phone

  • Built in cords for Apple Lightening and micro-USB

3. Activate the Oomf

  • Go to
  • Sign-in or register
  • Stand within 5 ft. of the charging base to activate the Oomf with the 4-letter code on the back
  • If your phone is dead, a friend can activate for you
4. Return the Oomf to any of the 10 charging locations across campus
  • Free for 24 hrs.
  • Email reminders sent when period expiring
  • $5/day after that

We will evaluate usage after the 3-month period; if beneficial we will continue to offer this solution.
