Campus community, public urged to register for free PSUTXT service

Penn State Beaver students, faculty, staff and the general public are encouraged to register for PSUTXT, an emergency notification text messaging service that allows Penn State to send messages to your cellphone in the event of a campus emergency, such as weather-related school closings, delays and other news alerts.

Subscription is free for the service, but individual phone plans may charge for receiving text messages. Check with your cell service provider for details.

To register for PSUTXT, visit and follow the instructions. To verify that you have subscribed, you will receive a text message at the cellphone number you provided. Then follow the instructions you receive in order to validate your subscription. You can also subscribe to receive these messages via email using the same website referenced above.
