InfoStations FAQ

What is the main purpose of the InfoStations?

In the event of an emergency, WVU Police Department sends a text message from the e2Campus system which in turn triggers an alert page on all InfoStations across campus. This alert message will take precedence over all pages and will include an audible alert. It is required that all InfoStations have the volume turned up in order for this alert to be heard.
