The University will conduct a test of its text message alert system on Thursday, Feb. 23, at approximately 10 a.m. All students, faculty, and staff who have a current cell phone number recorded in the Self-Service Center should receive the test message as a text on their cell phone.

In addition, all students, faculty, and staff should receive this test message through their University of Hartford email.

The text message alert system was established to quickly inform students, faculty, and staff of potential, developing, or existing emergencies. Weather-related closings are also announced through the text message system.

You must have an accurate cell phone number recorded in Self-Service in order to receive emergency text notifications on your phone.
