Emergency Text Messaging Systems


Miami University has contracted with Omnilert (e2Campus) to provide emergency notification services to the university community via cell phone text messages and email. The system, "Miami Emergency Text Messaging System," is available to Miami University students, faculty and staff on all three Butler County campuses.

Messages may be used for situations that pose immediate danger or the closing of an entire campus. Messages about Safety Bulletins generally will not be sent unless it is decided there is an imminent threat of danger. This notification service will not eliminate or replace any existing emergency reporting procedures; it will add to them.

Students, Faculty and Staff may Login to Omnilert, by using their UniqueID and MUNet password, to review/update their information or opt-out of the emergency text messaging system.

Guests and Visitors to Miami University may choose to opt-in to receive emergency notifications during their time on campus. Guests and visitors may text the phrase “muguest” to 79516 to receive emergency information by text messages. To opt-out, guests and visitors may reply STOP to cancel the service. 

Please contact the IT Services Support Desk for assistance: 513-529-7900 or ithelp@MiamiOH.edu.>
