Resources for Parents & Families

As fall semester nears its midway mark, it is our hope that your student is engaged in their courses and connecting with peers, organizations, and clubs; an important part of a meaningful experience here at PSU.

Information about student activities, recreation programs, intramural sports and University recognized student organizations and clubs, can be found at

Health Services and Insurance
For information about the health care provided by Health Services and information about health insurance, visit

Please be aware that your student’s participation in any sport club or other organization is not safeguarded by University insurance coverage.  If a student sustains an injury or is involved in an accident while participating in a club activity, the student’s individual insurance will be the only means of recovering any expenses incurred.  The student clubs do not carry individual insurance riders to mitigate the liability of their club activities.

PSU’s Family Portal
Through myPlymouth for Families, you can access your student’s enrollment and billing information at any time, day or night. Delivered to you in an easy-to-navigate online format, myPlymouth for Families provides the information you need, all from an account set up just for you.

To establish your myPlymouth for Families account, your student must invite you. Your student has the ability to invite a variety of family members, from siblings and cousins to parents and grandparents. Options include bill notification, bill view, enrollment verification, housing view, purchasing campus FlexCash, or course schedule view. Once invited into myPlymouth for Families, you can also register to receive emergency text messages or e-mail alerts.

Emergency Communication
In the event of a campus emergency, PSU uses a number of channels to reach out to students, faculty, staff, and the local community to communicate important safety information as well as changes to campus schedules. The most common emergencies are related to weather, but these communication systems can also be used for more serious incidents. Your student will automatically receive emergency messages based on information entered as part of their registration. Please check with your student to ensure that they have confirmed their mobile number for the text alerts, through their myPlymouth account, under myTab, then selecting “Emergency Notifications”. The student’s registered e-mail address will receive e-mail alerts, and the registered mobile phone will receive text messages. The student’s registered e-mail address will receive e-mail alerts and the registered cell phone will receive text messages.

You may also choose to receive messages by registering an e-mail address or a cell phone number through the myPlymouth for Families portal. Once your student invites you into the portal, you can register by selecting “Emergency Notification,” which is located in the myPlymouth sidebar under the “Services” heading. There is no fee to register, though some cell phone plans may charge a fee for each message received.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (603) 535-2206.

Check the PSU Public Phone Directory for other important phone numbers.
