Student Housing SMS Solutions


SMS Messaging in the Education Sector

College students living in dorms and apartments need to stay updated on what’s going on in their buildings. Between balancing their classes, extracurricular activities and jobs, they may benefit from reminders about important things at their residences. Help students stay in the know about their housing by implementing a Short Message Service (SMS) solution from Red Oxygen.

How to Use SMS for Student Housing

Administrators, resident assistants (RAs), maintenance and housekeeping crews, and other team members can benefit from using an SMS solution. Some of the many things you can use text message alerts for include:

Emergency Alerts

Sometimes things happen, whether they are accidents, power outages, burst pipes or anything else. When these events affect student residences, getting the word out as quickly as possible is important. Alerting students to these types of issues can help keep them safe.

Roommate Assignments

With so much to communicate to students, you want to ensure you are getting them the most important information timely. Alert students of new housing and roommate assignments with personalized messages.

Repair and Maintenance Updates

Whether you need to remove snow, perform inspections or complete construction work, SMS updates help. This service can keep your renters and students aware of what date and time these projects are occurring, which allows them to schedule their day accordingly.
