Monash University campus alert system tested
On April 14, all Monash University staff and students who have registered with the university’s SMS alert service received a test text message.
Almost 54,000 Monash staff and students have registered to receive important alert text messages from the university via their mobile phones.
The service, which is currently only available to Monash’s Australian campuses, helps provide important information quickly by SMS text to participating students and staff via their mobile phones.
This is particularly useful in the event of a campus emergency, or where services might be interrupted, or it becomes necessary to restrict access to a campus or facility. These short text alerts can be sent to thousands of mobile phones in a matter of seconds.
To be part of the service, students and staff must enter their mobile phone number into the secure online student or staff records.
Once you receive this test message, there is no need for action except if you need to update or check your details.
