Want to be notified of technology outages by text? Opt in by texting DrakeITS2018 to phone number 226787. Text messages will only be sent between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 9 p.m.

The list is cleared at the end of each academic year, so if you were signed up last year, please re-enroll. We will continue to also post outage and news on the ITS website, IT Service Portal, and our ITS Twitter account.

If you run into issues signing up for the service, first try responding HELP to any error message you might receive. Sometimes the service isn’t configured correctly for your carrier. If that doesn’t work, contact your cell phone provider to make sure they have enabled short code texting.
