At this time, UConnALERT text messages will only be sent during football games at Rentschler Field and men’s and women’s basketball games at Gampel Pavilion. If more Athletics events are added, this page will be updated and there will be additional communication through email and social media channels.
Messages are most likely to be sent out shortly before an event, during an event, or immediately after an event. In any given situation, you may receive no messages at all, or you may receive multiple messages about such situations as heavier-than-normal traffic delays, adverse weather conditions, or other factors that may impact attendance of the event. Additionally, in the event of an immediate danger to health or safety, the UConnALERT system will be used to communicate urgent information, along with other communications media.
Yes. The keyword UConnALERT is specifically reserved for immediate dangers to health or safety. Advisories about traffic, adverse weather, or other non-emergency situations at football and basketball events will not be sent to you if you have only signed up to receive messages with the keyword UConnALERT.
You will receive messages from every game as long as you remain subscribed to the UConnGameDay and/or UConnGampel message services. To unsubscribe at any time, simply text the word STOP to 888-777. You can also re-subscribe to UConnGameDay and/or UConnGampel at any time. There is no charge, but your mobile service provider’s messaging and data rates may apply.
No. You will receive messages from the UConnGameDay and/or UConnGampel services only for football games played at Rentschler Field, and men’s and women’s basketball games played at Gampel Pavilion.

Yes. As a current UConn student, faculty member, or staff member, you are already enrolled for UConnALERT email notifications, and should be enrolled for UConnALERT text messages. These channels are reserved for critical information about situations that could potentially impact health and safety. Messages about non-emergency traffic delays or adverse weather at football games or on-campus basketball games will NOT be sent via these channels. In order to receive messages about football games at Rentschler Field and/or on-campus men’s and women’s basketball games, you still need to sign up for UConnGameDay and/or UConnGampel messages.
