Changes for DPU Alert

Lincoln Park Campus
This month, DePaul is making changes to DPU Alert, the university's direct emergency notification system.  

For emergency email messages, the "from” email address for DPU Alerts will now appear as When DPU Alert was tested earlier this quarter, the university received feedback that the email address appeared to look like spam or a phishing email. Based on this input, DePaul modified the sender email to a address.  
Text messages will originate from 89361. Please note, short codes used for SMS messages are subject to change. The number for voice messages will continue to originate from (312) 362-6226. Please consider adding an entry for DPU Alert in your contacts.
