SJSU Emergency Alert System

San José State University is committed to providing a safe environment for the campus community, which includes students, faculty, staff, and guests. To support this goal, SJSU has created a campus emergency notification system known as Alert SJSU. The purpose of this system is to quickly disseminate emergency information to the campus community during critical incidents. 

Alert SJSU is an “opt out” program for all currently-enrolled students and active employees, meaning all students and employees are automatically enrolled. Visitors to campus can enroll in Alert SJSU following the instructions below.

Signing Up for Alert SJSU

Long-term users, for example San Jose Public Library employees, construction workers and contractors working on San Jose State property, and members of the communities surrounding San Jose State, can easily sign up for alerts by texting the keyword SJSUsafety to 226787. There is no expiration date.

Short-term users, for example visitors at events such as football games, concerts, or lectures, can also easily sign up by texting the keyword SJSUvisitor to 67283. This alert expires in one day.

In both cases, texting STOP will cease the alerts.
