Marymount University’s Emergency Notification System
Marymount University students, faculty, and staff can sign up to receive alerts about emergency situations affecting the campus community, as well as notification of weather-related delays, cancellations, and closings.
MU Alerts is a text-messaging and e-mail system that enables Marymount to notify members of the campus community quickly in the event of an emergency. Messages sent will be brief (stating the nature of the situation and suggested action). More detailed information will be posted on Marymount’s Web site and Weather and Emergency Information Phone Line (703-526-6888). Other means of emergency communication (such as Cable TV message scrolling, Twitter, Facebook, External PA systems, and use of the local media) will also continue to be used.
MU Alerts messages are automatically sent to all Marymount e-mail addresses. Students, faculty, and staff must sign-up to have MU Alerts text messages sent to their cell phones or MU Alerts e-mails sent to their private (non-Marymount) mailboxes.
