Students are reminded of the process for receiving MUPD text message alerts in the case that a safety alert is sent to campus.
Please remember that safety alerts are sent to all students, faculty and staff when there is an active threat to campus. A text notification is sent first, followed by an email with additional information about the incident.
To make sure you are signed up to receive text alerts, as well as weather-related closing information, students must enroll in the university’s emergency text messaging system by entering your cell phone number in the “Personal Information” section of CheckMarq. The phone number listed must be labeled as “mobile” in order to receive texts – if it’s listed as “home” you won’t receive text alerts.
Please note: If your family’s home phone number or a parent’s cell phone number is listed here, you may not be receiving safety text alerts. Make sure to change this in CheckMarq.
The program Marquette uses to send safety alert texts to students does not allow parents to sign up to receive alerts directly. Parents who wish to get updates on safety alerts can visit MUPD’s Twitter account, @MarquettePD, where safety alerts are posted.
