Urbana University Alerts is a text messaging and email notification system that will notify registered users when there is a major emergency, crisis situation or disaster; or other emergency closing or delay information for Urbana University locations. Urbana University faculty, staff and students are automatically enrolled in the Urbana University Alerts system via their Urbana University email address. Once enrolled in the Urbana University Alerts system, users have the opportunity to choose to “opt-out” of the system and not receive future notifications. Campus Safety highly recommend you NOT “opt-out.”
Registration information will not be shared with outside sources and will only be used to send emergency messages. Users can add additional cell phone numbers by sending a text message to 79516 and in the message box type UUAlerts (case sensitive). This will automatically enroll the cell phone number into the system.
