Campus Emergency Text Message Notification System

Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to register for Towson University's state-of-the-art emergency notification system. It is the safest way to ensure that you receive critical university notifications on safety issues, school closings and weather alerts.

The system sends messages to all registered text-message capable phones, PDAs and email addresses to alert registrants of information critical to their safety and well-being. The service will also post the message on the university's website and as a pop-up box for individuals using Google, Yahoo or AOL as their home page.

To register for an account, make sure your cell phone is with you and is turned on. Select the link below, login to your TU account, and complete the registration form. Please note that depending on your wireless service agreement, a nominal charge may be incurred for receiving text messages.

Once your phone is registered and validated, a message will appear letting you know that you have successfully signed up for the notifications. You will see a log in button for your new account. To complete your registration, you must open your account and enter your email address, then click the ADD EMAIL button. You will receive an instant verification by email. You must open this email and click on the validation link. Then you're done! You may register two email addresses and two devices on your personal account.

Thank you for registering for Towson University's campus emergency notification system. If you have questions, please contact the University Police, 410-704-2134.
