Emergency Notification System

Emergency Messaging System

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas offers an emergency messaging system available to students, faculty, and staff as part of its continual emergency preparedness planning. The program can send a text, email, or voice message to all enrolled cellphones and email accounts in the event of an emergency at the University. All students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled in this system. The system is only used during an emergency or unexpected closing of the University. You will receive test messages on a regular basis to ensure that the service is working as expected. Use your ACE account to log in and update your information using the button below:
