Pirate Notification System (PNS)

The Pirate Notification System (PNS) is Hampton University's urgent notification system, comprised of a variety of methods by which the University can contact students, faculty, and staff. Ways to contact include:

  • Text messages (SMS) to mobile devices
  • Calls to home, office, and mobile phones
  • E-mails to non-Hampton University addresses
  • E-mails to Hampton University addresses are sent by default

Alerts will be sent by the Hampton University Police Department or the Business Office, depending on the nature of the situation.

The Pirate Notification System is a free service and will not charge you a subscribers fee. Standard text message and phone rates for your phone provider will apply.

How to Register for PNS

Students, faculty and staff are automatically imported into PNS. Users are then invited via email to create an account on the Member Portal and input additional methods of contact. Members are encouraged to register immediately as the email invitation will expire.
