  • Students are automatically enrolled in this service and will be sent messages based on the information provided in ISIS.
  • In case of an extreme emergency, students will receive a text message to the cell phone number entered on ISIS and an e-mail will be sent to their campus e-mail account. In addition a voice message will be sent to the phone number associated with a student’s permanent residence.
  • Students will also receive a voicemail message to the telephone number for their residence hall room or off-campus apartment if they provided the number on ISIS under the Emergency Contact Information page.
  • The parent/guardian cell phone and the parent/guardian email address entered on ISIS under the Emergency Contact Information page are specifically NOT included in the emergency notification system, by default.

    Students can log into the system and add any cell phones and voice numbers they want to use to receive alerts from BU, such as your parents' cell phones.
