Update Emergency Text Notification Number

The Gettysburg College emergency text notification system is used in the event of an extreme emergency situation occurring on or around campus that immediately threatens the safety of the campus at large.  Please note this system is rarely used.

Parents/guardians of current students (classes of 2025, 2026 and 2027):

To subscribe to the emergency text notification system, or to verify or update your emergency text notification subscription, please email families@gettysburg.edu. Include your student's name, your relationship to the student, and the cell phone number to be used for emergency text notifications.

Only U.S. mobile numbers may be used with this system. If you provided your number during the New Parent Dashboard process, no further action is needed.
