HSU Alert is the University's emergency text messaging notification system. Students, staff, and faculty are asked once each semester to enter, confirm, update, or opt out of providing a cellphone number to which a text message can be sent by emergency management personnel to alert individuals to an emergency situation affecting the campus.
All messages sent through the HSU Alert system self-identify as coming from HSU Alert.
Alerts will also be sent to your @humboldt.edu email address, but text messaging is faster and more efficient than email in an emergency.
Note that emergency notification numbers are numbers we use to contact you about an emergency, not the numbers we use to contact a third party if something has happened to you.
All messages from HSU Alerts will start with the words HSU Alert, but if you would like to store the information in your contacts, all you need to do is add the short codes 672-83 and 226-787 to your contacts as HSU Alert. Messages may come from either number, so please store both in your contacts.
If you have additional questions, send them in email to email@example.com
Once each semester, an HSU Alert update screen pops up when you go to log into myHumboldt. This popup requests that you take one of four actions:
You must select one of these four options in order to continue to proceed to myHumboldt; if you simply close the pop-up, it will reappear each time you log into myHumboldt until you do select one of the four options.
You can change your emergency text notification cellphone number at any time through the myHumboldt pagelet.
