All current students, faculty and staff are now automatically enrolled in HOYAlert, Georgetown’s mass notification system used in the event of an emergency situation or incident.
HOYAlert sends messages with guidance in the event of an incident affecting the safety or security of Georgetown University’s Main Campus, Medical Center, School of Continuing Studies and Law Center. HOYAlert allows users to receive these alerts via Georgetown University or personal email addresses, SMS text messaging to cell phones and PDAs, as well as voice messaging to a cell or landline phones. Messages can be sent at any time as incidents occur, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
All current students, faculty and staff will receive HOYAlerts at their Georgetown University email address and at additional email addresses and phone numbers that the University has on file. If you would like to update your information or opt out of HOYAlerts, please visit https://netid-mgmt.georgetown.edu/emergencycontact/.
HOYAlert (emails and texts) will continue to be used to notify students, faculty and staff about changes in the university’s operating status, including notifications regarding closings and delays. Inclement weather information (i.e. the university's operating status) can also be found by calling the inclement weather line at 202-687-7669 or visiting status.georgetown.edu. HOYAlert phone calls and voice messages will not be used to announce inclement weather information.
