Emergency Delay/Closing Guidelines

The safety of our campus community is always Stevenson’s priority. Conditions can arise that require the delay or cancelation of classes and events as well as the closure of campus.

Stevenson University has expanded its text messaging system for students, faculty, and staff.

Now, when you sign up for SUAlert emergency text alerts, you can also OPT-IN for timely text messages about campus events and news and information for resident students.

It's your choice: you OPT-IN for the text alerts that you want to receive. There are two text alert categories that you can opt into:

  • SU News - campus events, important dates, news, and more.
  • SU Resident News - provides timely information relevant to SU students living on campus.

At minimum, we recommend that you sign up for SUAlert in order to receive text messages about University weather closings or other SU emergencies. The frequency of these is rare but they are important.
