Campus Safety & Emergency Resources

UW Alert

The University of Washington has developed UW Alert to disseminate information via email, text messages, loudspeakers, website banners and other means, as needed, to keep the campus community informed during emergencies and situations that might disrupt normal operations.

UW faculty, staff and students in Bothell, Seattle, Tacoma and at UW Medicine can subscribe to receive UW Alert messages via text and email. UW Alert messages are also posted on Facebook and Twitter. Alert messages are limited to 160 characters, and more information about an incident can often be found on the UW Alert blog.
