ETSU Safe App


The university’s new safety app, called ETSU App, is now available to download for
Apple and Android devices. This new feature offers many new services, including information on: 

  • Reporting a tip
  • Requesting a friend walk
  • Accessing emergency plans for such incidents as a tornado, natural disasters, active shooters, etc.
  • Learning about other safety resources

In addition, with the ETSU App, a person’s location will be made available when an emergency call is made. The ETSU App has become the primary notification platform. There are two important steps each student, faculty and staff member should take immediately in order to prevent any lapse in receiving this important information.

STEP 1 - Download the App

Download ETSU App, if you have not done so already. You can find it in the App store or Google Play.

STEP 2 - Text to Subscribe

Text ETSU to 237233 to receive emergency text alerts.

To get the emergency text messages you must send a text message to the number above to enroll. If you only have the ETSU App, you can receive push notifications when an emergency message is sent if you allow them in your phone settings. Email updates are sent to all student, faculty, and staff accounts and notifications are sent to all campus desktops.   

Note:  Standard message and data rates may apply

You may text the word STOP to cancel at any time

decorative(1) Please use crosswalks when crossing the roads on campus.  There have been multiple accidents in the tri-cities area in the last few days where students have been struck by vehicles while jaywalking, or unlawfully crossing the road.  There are several well-marked cross walks on the ETSU campus and students and parents should always use the crosswalks for increased safety.



(2) Students, please take a minute to review the school policy concerning cell phones:
Electronic Devices (Radios, Tape Players, Tape Recorders, CD Players, Cell phones, Cameras, IPods, Electronic Pagers, etc.)

Students will not use personal electronic devices on the school grounds during the school day, (from 7:30 am - 3:00 pm). This rule is not intended to preclude the use of electronic devices for educational purposes. All prohibited electronic devices will be confiscated by University School employees. The device will be turned in to the office along with a disciplinary referral. The device will be kept in the office and returned to the parent/guardian at the end of the day before 4:00 pm. Repeat offenses will result in additional disciplinary action at the discretion of the administration.



Calculators?  Are you missing your calculator?  Have you had to buy a new calculator?  Officer Hudson recommends that all students bring in their calculators and allow him to engrave their name on the device in case they are lost or stolen.  Please see Officer Hudson for engraving services or to check for lost and found devices


We have been informed by the Johnson City Police Department that they are going to begin enforcing jaywalking statutes effective immediately.  The primary point of enforcement will be those crossing State of Franklin between the University and Carnegie Hotel.  Crossing the roadway creates a hazard for both drivers and pedestrians.  We encourage all individuals to please use the overhead walkway to cross State of Franklin.  Please stay safe, University School students, parents, and staff!!!
