Oakland University Emergency Notification

Oakland University maintains a text messaging alert system as part of its Comprehensive Emergency Communications Plan to notify students, faculty and staff as quickly as possible if an emergency situation occurs on campus, if the university has been closed or if there is a campuswide cancellation of classes. The text message alert system will provide information as a text message and/or voice message in these situations.

To use the service, you will first need to provide the information below. On the subsequent page, you will be directed to enter your telephone numbers so automated contact can be made.

Participation is completely voluntary. The text message alert system will be used in the event of a bona fide emergency, university closure or campuswide cancellation of classes. The text message alert system is independent of other campus databases, therefore contact information you provide here will not be shared with any other campus office, or vice versa. It is your responsibility to return to this page to update your contact information should it change.

Visit the Emergency Preparedness Web site for full details on OU's plans for handling campus crises.
