Penn State Harrisburg keeps faculty, staff, and students informed of delays and cancellations due to severe weather through the PSUAlert system, Facebook page, Twitter feed and on the campus website, as well as the telephone voicemail system, e-mail, and automated messages at the college's main telephone number, 717-948-6000. Local television and radio stations also inform the public of delays and cancellations.
PSUAlert is an easy and accessible system that notifies you via e-mail or cell phone in the event of a campus closure or emergency. All Penn State students, faculty, and staff are automatically signed up to receive e-mail alerts via their Penn State e-mail address. An active Penn State access account is required for users to access PSUAlert and to change contact settings, such as adding e‑mails and cell phone numbers to receive text messages.
