Text Messaging

Text messaging is one of the most recognizable forms of communicating to the campus community.

Ohio State's text messaging system is designed to provide rapid notification to alert students, faculty and staff of an emergency situation that requires them to take immediate action to help preserve their safety and security. Text messaging is a simple and reliable means to send messages to as many text-message capable phones (or other digital devices) as quickly as possible.

Text messaging works on any text-message capable cell phone and does not require any hardware or software installation by the receiving party.
