Emergency Notification 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 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.

Opting Out of the System

Please note: The Emergency Notification System relies on your cellphone carrier to transmit these emergency messages to you, therefore your receipt of these messages cannot be expressly guaranteed.
