Carlow University uses a notification system, e2Campus, that is capable of sending short emergency messages instantly and simultaneously to all registered email addresses, mobile phones (including iPhones, Blackberrys, Android) wireless PDAs, pagers, and other smartphones. Emergency messages are also posted to Carlow's homepage at carlow.edu. All Carlow email addresses are automatically enrolled: students, faculty and staff will need to complete, sign, and submit the appropriate form found on myPortal (Carlow login required) to register additional contact devices, if they choose.
Messages will be of an urgent or emergency nature only.
This will be the most effective way for you to receive notifications critical to your safety and well-being.
Thank you for your participation.
Tests for the e2Campus system will be conducted periodically throughout the school year. You will recieve prior notification of all scheduled tests.
