Widener is implementing a notification system that enables the university to send urgent news - including information on emergencies and/or class cancellations - directly to your cell phone or e-mail account. All you have to do is complete the free, online sign-up.

The service is available to all current Widener University students, faculty and staff on the Chester, Exton, Harrisburg and Wilmington campuses. There is no charge from the university to use the service. However, depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages.

Powered by e2Campus, the notification system will be used to communicate important information during any potential emergency, such as a snow delay or closing, homeland security advisory, weather warning, gas leak, fire, crime watch, power failure or other significant event.
