(Some smartphone, prepay or “minutes” cell phone plans may not work with the emergency notification system. Consult the FAQ to see if you are affected.)
In addition to UB Alert text messaging, emergency messages will be provided to faculty, staff and students using official campus communication channels including this website (emergency.buffalo.edu), the campus-wide UB Alert listserv, UB’s home page, the MyUB portal, UB Now, 716-645-News, the UB Alert Twitter feed and UB Facebook pages.
