Broadcast messaging alerts

Wayne State uses a broadcast messaging service to communicate safety alerts to the campus community via SMS texts. Sign up for the service at, or on Academica under the University Resources tab.

Safety alerts are automatically sent to all students, faculty and staff via email by the Wayne State University Police Department. These alerts may communicate information about significant weather events, campus closures, emergency situations and more. There is no fee, although text message charges or per-message fees from your provider may apply. Terms and conditions for WSU broadcast messaging can be found at
