UNCW ALERT Emergency Phone Notification

UNCW Alert includes multiple communication tools that the university may deploy during an emergency.  Pay attention to the university homepage, emails, text messages, phone calls and other communications from the university.

Student Instructions:

Effective spring 2018, student phone numbers are automatically registered to receive UNCW Alert emergency notifications by voice and text. Read more about this, and find instructions for opting out here

Employee Instructions:

Employees must opt in to receive UNCW Alert emergency notifications by voice and text. UNCW email accounts have always been included in the emergency notifications. Your emergency phone contact remains confidential and is only used for emergency notification and periodic system testing. In an actual emergency, messages may be received at any time of day or night. Standard text messaging fees may apply, but there are not additional charges from the university.
