ISU Alert & Emergency Contacts

 

Iowa State University maintains information regarding your preferred contact information to be used if the University needs to inform you about a campus-wide emergency (ISU Alert), and additional information to be used if the University needs to let others know that you are personally involved in an emergency situation (Emergency Contacts). Log into AccessPlus and follow these easy steps to provide or update both types of information.
