University Notices


University Notices is a weekly email update of official university events and other activities. It's published every Thursday evening in three editions - one for staff, one for faculty, and one for students.

All faculty and staff may submit information for publication in University Notices; however, each department may submit no more than three items per week. Students may submit items for publication after getting approval from the Clubs Office.

Who's it for?

System Configuration

An HSU email address is all that's required to propose an item for inclusion in University Notices.

Additional Information

Only messages that relate to official University business or special University events will be published. Messages that do not have campus-wide significance will be rejected.

Emergency communications

Messages concerning emergencies and other unusual events are published immediately when approved by the President, a Vice President, the Chief Information Officer, the Chief of Police, the Information Security Officer, the Associate Vice President of Facilities Management or the Director and Information Officers of Public Affairs. Please ensure that you have provided your cellphone number for the HSU Alert emergency text notification service. Students should enter their information in the Personal Info pagelet on their myHumboldt home page; staff and faculty should enter their information under the Contacts tab in the My Profile pagelet on the Faculty/Staff tab in myHumboldt.


We don't recommend unsubscribing from University Notices, as you could miss out on events and other activities of interest. However, if you do decide you don't want to receive these updates, you can choose which of the automatically-distributed university email messages you wish to receive. Here's how to make your selections:

  1. Log into the Email Options tool.
  2. Select In to receive messages from the lists you're interested in and Out to stop receiving messages from the lists you're not interested in, then click Save Changes

When you've finished making your selections, click Exit in the upper right corner of the page and close your browser to protect your privacy.

Accessing This Service

To submit an item for publication, go to the University Notices Request form.

For security purposes, access to the University Notices Request form requires different logon credentials than your HSU User Name and Password. You can request these credentials by sending an email to unotices@humboldt.edu with a short description of the information you wish to publish. If you're approved, you will be provided with the user name and password to access the University Notices Request form.

Students who wish to submit an item for publication must first get approval from the Clubs Office at (707) 826-3776.

Using This Service


The deadline for submitting an item for inclusion in the weekly University Notices mailing is 12:00 noon on Thursday for all three editions. Requests submitted after the deadline or more than two weeks prior to an event will not be accepted.

Submission guidelines

Each department is limited to three submissions per week; items for inclusion are limited to a short headline, three 50-character lines of text, and an optional URL which can be used to provide the reader with additional information.

Student submissions

Once approval has been received from the Clubs Office, student requests are reviewed by University Computing Services. If the request meets the appropriate guidelines, the item will be included in the next issue of University Notices. Please allow 2-3 days prior to Thursday's deadline for the required authorizations.
