Emergency Notification

The personal safety of students, faculty and staff is the top priority of Marylhurst University. In addition to providing you with a secure work and study environment on campus, we want to take every precaution to ensure your safety in the event of a campus emergency.

We've established an emergency communications system to give you timely notification of an unforeseen event that closes the campus and threatens safety. We have contracted with a company called ConnectEd® to immediately deliver emails and phone calls to students, staff and faculty in the event of a campus emergency.

The ConnectEd® system will be used only to contact you in case of an emergency on our campus.

To make this service effective, we must maintain up-to-date contact information. Please regularly check and update your contact information in your My Marylhurst profile. If you have questions about updating your information, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

We will test this system quarterly. You will receive a test message via both phone and email. The message will make clear the system is being tested, and that an actual emergency is not occurring. As a precaution, we will contact students currently taking classes, as well as those who took classes the previous quarter and who have registered for the upcoming quarter.

If you have questions about the ConnectEd® system, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 503.699.6256.

Inclement weather

The new service will not be used to inform you about weather-related events, such as excessive snowfall that may close the campus, that are widely reported by local media. For weather-related closures, you should continue to rely on our website and our weather line at 503.636.8140.
