Campus Emergencies Notification System
Rapid notifications in emergency situations will be sent to faculty, staff, and students via the following channels: text, phone, and email, depending on individual preferences. All contact methods may be updated or changed within MyU with the exception of the umn.edu email address, which is required.
All users are encouraged to specify their contact preferences and update their contact information in MyU.
SAFE-U emergency messages are sent to alert students, faculty, and staff on-campus during dangerous conditions. For example, severe storm warnings, building evacuations, or equal threats of danger. While SAFE-U retains information privacy the service also comes at no charge to students. However, cell phone carrier text plan rates and fees may vary upon the current text message package assigned.
