The e2Campus product is a patent pending universal notification system that allows designated administrators to send time-sensitive messages to the mobile phones, email, and/or pagers of their subscribers (students, faculty, staff, radio stations, TV stations, and others). In the event of an emergency, subscribers can get notified immediately of the situation, wherever they are geographically.

Q: What is a notification?
A: A notification is defined as a form of communication that delivers descriptive information about news or an event, unlike a bell or siren that communicates little information.

A: NO. e2Campus is a 100% web-based software system, so you do not need any additional software or hardware. All you need is a web browser with an Internet connection and you are up and running! You can look at e2Campus as a Public Safety "Utility"- always on and ready for action.
Q: Will any person receive unsolicited messages ("SPAM") on their mobile phone?
A: NO. e2Campus enforces a ZERO SPAM policy which clearly prohibits unsolicited messages, and e2Campus does not sell the contact information of our subscribers to third party marketers.
Q: People can text me however I cannot receive a message from e2Campus
A: There are two types of text messaging:
- Mobile Originated (sending a text message from one phone to another)
- Mobile Terminated (a non-cellphone to a cell phone)
You may be able to receive Mobile-to-mobile messaging however it appears that mobile terminated messaging is not activated on your account. Please check with your provider on this. In the interim you can register an email account and/or voice phone in order to receive alerts.
