Campus Community Safety

UW Alert to add student phone numbers for emergency texts

When an emergency occurs on or near UW’s campus, you need to know as quickly as possible, but only 8% of students have signed up for UW Alert text messages.

To make it easier for students to receive UW Alert texts, UW will be adding the phone number from your UW student profile to the UW Alert system. If the number is for a cell phone, UW will send you UW Alerts via text.

Students who don’t want to receive texts can reply STOP to any UW Alert text message (except for students living on campus in Seattle, who must contact Housing & Food Services for account changes). You can also add your cell phone number to your UW Alert account yourself.

UW will start adding student phone numbers to UW Alert at the end of January 2024.

Register to attend a panel discussion about public service and international development on Jan. 18 from 3:30–5:00 p.m. in HUB 332. Panelists include representatives from the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the US State Department and the Peace Corps.
