Emergency Notification System

BeachALERT

The CSULB BeachALERT Emergency Notification System communicates official information to our students, faculty, staff, and other community members during certain emergency situations utilizing voice, email, and text messages.

Taking into account the safety of our campus and surrounding community, a BeachALERT notification will be sent without delay once an immediate threat to campus safety is identified and confirmed. All members of our campus community must ensure that their personal contact information is always up to date by logging into MyCSULB at least once each semester.

LOG INTO MYCSULB

All current CSULB students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled to receive BeachALERT notifications, but it is still vital to ensure that your information is listed correctly. In order to receive text alerts, your cell phone number must be listed under the "Mobile" option and not the "Home" option, and you must indicate it as a "Preferred" number (see additional instructions below). Text messages are currently the quickest and most reliable way for us to communicate to you during an emergency situation.

HOW TO UPDATE YOUR PHONE NUMBER:

Students:

  1. From the MyCSULB homepage, click "MYCSULB" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
  2. Sign in with your username and password. If you have never logged into MyCSULB before, click "Activate Your Account" before logging in.
  3. Under "My Menu", click "Student Center" then click "Preferred Phone" in the contact information box.
  4. Review the information listed for "Home" and "Mobile" telephone listings. Entering your mobile number will automatically subscribe you to receive emergency alerts via text message.

Auxiliaries:

If you are a member of a campus Auxiliary or are considered a community partner that conducts regular business on campus, please contact your area Human Resources Department for instructions on how to update your contact information. We collect data feeds from these areas and input them manually into our BeachALERT Emergency Notification System.

If you have any questions please contact the campus Emergency Management and Preparedness Coordinator at Allyson.Joy@csulb.edu.
