|The Oakland University Police Department (OUPD) strongly encourages all campus community members to register to receive emergency text alerts.|
In addition to providing the most immediate source of critical information during a campus emergency, this communication tool is also used to notify faculty, staff and students of university closures, campus-wide cancellations of classes, power outages and snow emergencies.
Anyone with an active OU e-mail account and Grizz ID number can register quickly and easily on the OUPD web section. Those who have not yet registered for the service have an opportunity to do so and see the system at work during the winter 2020 emergency text alert test, which will take place at about 1 p.m. on Thursday, January 30.
Registered users who have ensured their contact information is up to date and do not receive a text alert test message on Thursday should report this to [email protected]. To learn more about emergency preparedness on campus, visit the OU Emergency Management web section.
Thank you for your efforts to help keep Oakland University one of the safest campuses in the United States.
