Events are the most important bits of information that should be delivered timely wherever the person is. It is but equally important that a person must have the ability to keep abreast with the recent trends of technology in order to be notified of the important events that need to be addressed or responded immediately. Sometimes, notification of events is given in a short period of time, which sometimes leads to failure in attending or responding such events. In today's generation, smartphones are always and almost available to every individual, with which one of its most important features is notification. It is under this premise that prompted the researchers to develop an Android-based ubiquitous notification app for Bukidnon State University (BukSU) to speed up the dissemination of information about the upcoming events and activities of the university. The University Administrators will act as an admin in order to input and update the list of activities or events for the entire academic year which is either planned, unplanned, routine or emergency in nature. The faculty, staff, students and other stakeholders will act as a user and will be notified of the academic activities. A Waterfall Model was used in the design process and Android studio in the development of the application. As a result, the system was tested in terms of its functionality, applicability, relevance, and usability. The overall result has a mean of 4.736 which indicates that the respondents are very satisfied with the mobile application. A ubiquitous notification app is currently being utilized by the Bukidnon State University Administrators in order to notify the students, faculty, staff, and alumni in notifying them of the event before it takes place.
