On Tuesday, Oct. 17, at noon, a test text message was sent to the cell phones of all students, faculty, and staff who have their cell phone number recorded as "Cellular Phone" in the Self-Service Center.

If you did NOT receive the test message on your cell phone and believe you should have, or if you need to add your cell phone number in order to receive emergency text notifications, please do the following: 

Go to and follow the step-by-step instructions to check or add your cell phone number in the Self-Service Center. Please make sure that your cell phone number is listed specifically as “Cellular Phone,” and not just as your primary phone.

If your information is listed and accurate—but you did not receive the test message—or if you have other questions, please email the Help Desk or call 860.768.4357.

If you DID receive the test message on your cell phone, you do not need to take any additional steps. 

All faculty, staff, and students should also have received the test alert through their University of Hartford email.

The text message alert system was created to quickly inform the campus community of potential, developing, or existing emergencies. Weather-related closings are also announced through the text message system.
