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 simultaneous messages to all registered text-message capable phones, PDAs, and e-mail addresses to alert registrants of information critical to their safety and well-being. The service will also post the message on the university's Web site 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 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 e-mail address, then click the ADD E-MAIL button. You will receive an instant verification by e-mail. You must open this e-mail and click on the validation link. Then you're done! You may register two e-mail addresses and two devices on your personal account.
