PSUAlert is Penn State's emergency notification system for students, faculty, and staff. The system will be used to alert members of Penn State's campus communities of emergencies, campus closings, and other urgent information. Using this portal, students, faculty, and staff can choose to receive PSUAlert messages by text message, voice message, and email.

You can receive emergency notifications in several ways:

  • By email: You will automatically receive alerts at your Penn State email address and you cannot deactivate that feature. However, you may add up to two additional email addresses.
  • By text: You may register up to three cell phone numbers to receive alerts by text.
  • By voice: You may register up to three phone numbers (cell or land) to receive alerts by voice message. Consider adding your office phone as one of these numbers.
