PSUAlert emergency messaging service (previously PSUTXT)

PSUAlert graphicPenn State University has transitioned to a new emergency messaging service -



Reminder to former PSUTXT subscribers:

Students, faculty and staff who currently receive messages via the expiring PSUTXT emergency alerts system will need to re-­enter their emergency contact information using the PSUAlert portal.


No subscriber information will be carried over from PSUTXT to PSUAlert, so it is imperative that current PSUTXT subscribers take this step.


Penn State officials will send emergency alerts using both systems until the end of the day on June 30, at which point PSUAlert will become the University’s sole emergency messaging system.


Alerts are specific to campuses.






PSUTXT is a service that will be discontinued on June 30, 2014.
