Alert U Logo.

The Alert U system rapidly notifies UMMC faculty, staff, and students of on-campus emergencies via text message and e-mail. All employees and students must have a current cell phone number in Workday to receive Alert U messages. 

To verify that your cell phone number is accurate, please visit Workday on the UMMC intranet. You must select "Mobile" for a cellular device under the "Primary" phone number option to receive text message alerts. 

Alert U also uses the Everbridge mobile safety app, allowing students, faculty and staff to instantly contact UMMC Police, check in while on campus, and safely walk to and from parking areas by sharing a location trail in the app. The Everbridge app is available for download in the Apple Store and Google Play. 

To learn more about Alert U, visit the Alert U page.
