Harvard University recently made updates to MessageMe to improve the likelihood that you receive critical alerts in a timely manner. These updates will enable the University to also reach you by the contact information that you provided when you claimed your HarvardKey:

  • Primary recovery email address (most likely a personal email address)
  • HarvardKey two-step verification cellphone number (if provided)

We encourage you to confirm your contact preferences and update your contact profile.
