IU Notify text messages to begin March 28


All Indiana University students, faculty and staff will automatically receive IU Notify text messages beginning March 28, according to a March 14 IU press release

This is a change from the current system, in which IU students, faculty and staff receive email messages by default but must manually opt-in to text messages. 

“Our top priority is the safety of the Indiana University community, and receiving IU Notify text messages is the quickest way to receive official university information during an emergency on your campus,” IUPD Public Information Officer Hannah Skibba said in the release. 

According to its website, IU Notify is used to alert and provide updates en masse to students, faculty and staff about emergencies, including severe weather, hostile intruders or ongoing threats that could cause harm. 

Students, faculty and staff will still receive IU Notify email messages. 

Users can receive notifications for one or all of IU’s campuses and can add up to three cellular phone lines and three landlines.  

All preferences can be updated or changed on One.IU, according to the release.
