TXT-U Emergency Notification

TXT-U is the University of Minnesota's emergency notification text messaging system. Using an "opt-in system" instead of previous "opt-out" methods, University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff can stay informed about critical campus safety information by registering to receive TXT-U messages.

TXT-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 TXT-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.
