Tiffin University has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to provide you with TU Alert, an emergency alert system capable of delivering messages to your campus and personal email addresses as well as your mobile and home phone number.
We have registered all TU students, faculty, and staff in the TU Alert at no additional expense to you. You will not receive unsolicited advertising via this system; it is used only for official EMERGENCY communications from Tiffin University.
If you have your mobile and/or home telephone number in Self Service, you will be notified of EMERGENCY information, including inclement weather advisories, via text messaging, voice message and email. If no mobile and/or home number is provided, these notifications will only be sent via email. Note: your cellular phone provider may charge a per-text message fee for the delivery of notifications to your phone.
For the safety of all, we encourage you to visit the Rave Mobile site to confirm your contact information and choose your notification preferences in TU Alert. This will ensure that you receive critical emergency notifications as soon as the University sends them.
Steps to manage your contact information for Rave Mobile:
1) Log into Self-Service with your TU username and password
2) Click the "My Profile" tab
3) Click "Emergency Alert System" link
Once in the Rave system, you will be able to change your telephone numbers, or add additional ones. You will also be able to add additional email address that you may want notifications to be sent to.
