Eagle Alert

To ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, The University of Southern Mississippi offers the Eagle Alert emergency notification system.

Students, faculty and staff can sign up to receive time-sensitive emergency messages via text and voice messages to cell phones and home phones. Eagle Alert allows the university to better inform the campus community of imminent danger and emergency situations.

Participation in this system is not mandatory, but enrollment is strongly encouraged. You will be eligible to receive alerts 24 hours after you have signed up.

Eagle Alert is a secure system, and messages will be sent through the system only in an emergency and for periodic testing. It will not be used to send advertising or spam to personal phones.

The university also distributes emergency alerts to official Southern Miss e-mail addresses.
