MessageMe is Harvard University’s emergency notification system.

In the event of an emergency or significant disruption in operations, the University will use MessageMe to quickly distribute critical information to all active Harvard faculty, staff, students, and other community members who are likely to be on campus.

MessageMe uses your HarvardKey contact information to alert you. You can review this information and provide additional notification methods by updating your MessageMe profile.

Important changes in how we contact you

We recently made updates to MessageMe to improve the likelihood that you receive critical alerts in a timely manner. These updates will enable the University to also reach you by the contact information that you provided when you claimed your HarvardKey

  • Primary recovery email address (most likely a personal email address) 
  • HarvardKey two-step verification cellphone number (if provided) 

We encourage you to confirm your contact preferences and update your contact profile.
