UConn Alert System

In the event of an emergency, the UConn community will be notified through a variety of mechanisms including text message, social media, email, voicemail, and this website.

The homepage of this website will provide the latest information, including possible action. Regular updates will be posted as they become available.

Emails will go out to faculty, staff, and students. Text messages will go out to those who have registered their phone number. A voicemail will be posted at the University’s 24-hour emergency closing information number, (860) 486-3768. UConn’s Facebook page and Twitter account will also broadcast the alert.

Periodic testing of each of the alert components will be conducted and the University community will be notified in advance of any tests.

In any emergency situation, reacting quickly and calmly, and following directions, is of utmost importance.
