Emergency Alerts

Sign up for Emergency Text Messages

Students, staff, and faculty are automatically enrolled into SeattleUAlert messaging. Seattle University’s emergency notification service is available to the public. If you would like to enroll in the service, text SeattleUAlert to 79516.

SeattleUAlert is a text messaging and email service that allows Seattle University to send emergency information instantly to students, faculty, staff, and community members who register. It allows us to send time-sensitive emergency communication and provide official notification of any emergency situation that poses an imminent physical threat to the community. We may also use the service to distribute important non-emergency information such as unexpected campus interruptions or closures.

All information you provide is private and will not be shared. Registration is free, however your cell phone provider may charge standard text messaging fees.

University Emergency Broadcast Alert System

Some 'Blue Light' safety phones strategically located around campus are equipped with Emergency Broadcast Alert capabilities. Public Safety will use this system to audio broadcast campus-wide emergency alert messages. In an emergency, you can push the emergency call button on the 'Blue Light' safety phone and be connected with the Public Safety dispatcher. The 'Blue Light' phones are located on campus malls, parking areas, residence hall entries, and intramural fields.
