Campus Alert System

Your safety is our priority.

Dakota State University participates in the South Dakota Board of Regents' Campus Alert System. These messages include severe weather, campus closures and other emergency-related alerts. We want our students and employees to be both informed and safe.

The contact methods are:

  • Second Mobile Phone
  • Home Phone
  • Business Phone
  • Campus Assigned Email
  • Secondary Email

You can tailor your alerts to any combination of the above methods. We want to make sure we are sending you emergency alerts in the way that works best for you.
