Campus Alert System

Overview

The USD Campus Alert system (Everbridge) is an emergency notification tool for the public universities governed by the SD Board of Regents. The system helps to notify students, staff, and faculty of emergencies that occur on or near campus locations. Emergencies may include, but not be limited to, severe weather, unexpected closures, missing persons, security concerns, and evacuations of buildings.

  • Students are automatically a part of this system through their campus-assigned email address. By logging in, you may set your contact preferences to your personal telephone numbers, personal email addresses, or other personal electronic devices to receive these Campus Alerts. At the least, it is recommended to assign your Mobile Phone as a secondary contact. By assigning your mobile phone to the system, you will receive a phone call with a recorded message to your phone in addition to an email to your USD email account. 
     
  • Staff and faculty are also automatically included in this alert system with their campus-assigned email address. Staff and faculty can log in and add any campus-provided phone numbers (desk, cellular). Inclusion of personal contact information such as home telephone or personal cellular phone is encouraged, but not required.

Click Set Contact Preferences to receive time-sensitive message wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
