Campus alert system tested today

This afternoon, all staff and students who have registered with the University's SMS alert service will receive a test text message.

Almost 69,500 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 our 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 have to 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.

To update your details or sign up for the SMS message alert services:

If you are a staff member visit Monash Employee Self Service (ESS).
