FMS Advisories and Shutdown Notices

FMS strives to keep the people on campus apprised of any structural impediments and repairs in as timely a way as possible.  Email notices are sent to facility coordinators and others who request them to inform the campus community when there is an urgent issue, as well as, when there are known future disruptions, repairs and projects.  If you want an emailed notice about planned, urgent and emergency facility information for buildings on campus, subscribe to any of the FMS Mailing Lists that cover the building or area important to you.  Copies of all emailed notices are available at the FMS Advisory and Shutdown Notices link.


FMS tweets abbreviated updates to followers when new notices are emailed.  You can follow our tweets on your Twitter account at @CMU_FMSAnnounce

How to Join one the FMS Mailing Lists

If you want to receive email about planned, urgent and emergency facility information about buildings on campus, subscribe to any of the FMS Mailing Lists that cover the building or area important to you.

Please note: All of the FMS lists are set up for sending email notices only. Subscribers cannot post to the lists. If you have a question about a notice sent to you, contact the person listed at the end of the email or call the Service Response Center at 412-268-2910. Questions emailed to the mailing list or to FMS Announce are not read and will not be answered.

To subscribe to FMS lists:

  1. Go to the Andrew Mailman Mailing Lists webpage to browse available lists

  2. Sign in with your user ID

  3. Scroll to the “fms-“ lists.

    1. FMS list names are prefaced by “fms-“ and are followed by the name of the building or area of interest.  You may add yourself to more than one list.  An email sent to multiple lists will send only once to a specific email.  If you are on multiple lists, make sure to use the same email address.

    2. “fms-shutdown” is a list of subscribers who need to know what is happening at all areas of the campus. “fms-shutdown” list members receive almost all notices sent from FMS, which can be several emails a day. If you are only interested in one or two areas, do not subscribe to the “fms-shutdown” list. FMS receives notification of subscriptions and unsubscribes to this list.

    3. “fmsfcc-all” is a mailing list for communicating to all facility coordinators on campus. Generally, only facility coordinators should subscribe.

  4. Select a list you would like to join. Click the button at the bottom of the page that says: “Subscribe as /youremail@CMU/” If you do not see the “Subscribe” button that includes your email address, Log in via WebISO.

To unsubscribe from a list, scroll down on the list page to the Subscribers section and follow the instructions there.
