Sign up for PSUTXT


The University will transition to new emergency messaging service this summer.

This summer, Penn State will transition to a new emergency messaging system, away from the current service known as PSUTXT. The transition to the new service, which will be called PSUAlert, will begin in late May and will continue through June. No action is required at this time; to learn more, visit this link.


Penn State DuBois encourages students, faculty, and staff to enroll in PSUTXT, an easy and accessible system that lets you know via cell phone when the campus is closed due to weather conditions, or if the campus has an emergency situation. Sign up for PSUTXT and - when necessary - Penn State DuBois will send a text message alert directly to your cell phone and/or e-mail account.

While individuals' phone plans may charge for receipt of text messages, subscription to the PSUTXT service is free. All news feeds are optional. You will only receive messages from feeds that you specifically select. Any cell phone number registered with the service is protected by encryption and will be used exclusively for this service.

To register, visit http://live.psu.edu/psutxt online.
