eLiving Text Message Notifications

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

A new feature has been added in eLiving! Students can now opt in to receive text message notifications. eLiving was updated during summer 2018 to be mobile responsive and provide flexibility to add additional features as different components are redesigned.

Currently, students can opt in to receive text message notifications (text messages can be sent to U.S. cell phone numbers only) for the following actions:

  • Send a text message if I am invited to review Housing options
  • Send a text message if I am offered a contract

Cell phone numbers are managed through LionPATH. If the cell phone number displayed in eLiving is incorrect, the cell phone number can be updated in LionPATH in the "My Information" | "Personal Information" section. Please allow 24-48 hours before eLiving is updated. 

To opt in to receive text message notifications, log on to eLiving, select My Info > Account Settings. Select the notifications to opt in and click Submit. Students will continue to receive email notifications.

As improvements are continually made to eLiving, additional features will be added that students can opt in to receive text message notifications.
