Quick communication and accurate information are essential in an emergency.
The University at Buffalo offers a free service that delivers text messages and email messages to UB students, faculty, and staff during emergencies, incidents that may affect personal safety and when adverse weather conditions affect normal campus operations.
Members of the UB community can expect to receive quick and accurate information during an urgent situation, including changes in essential services, whether it’s an incident on campus, or severe weather that affects university operations.
Any UB student, staff or faculty member with a “@buffalo.edu” e-mail account (your UBITName plus “@buffalo.edu”) can subscribe.
Stay safe and be informed. You’ll always get @buffalo.edu emails, but this way you can add your cellphone or alternate email addresses, such as your Yahoo! or Gmail account.
It’s free (subscribers may incur text messaging charges depending on their wireless service provider and plan).
This system is designed to send messages to recipients’ cell phones, smartphones and UB email addresses.
You must have a buffalo.edu email account to register for this system. Once you have registered, you can request that text messages be sent to your cell phone or additional email addresses. (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. Local television and radio stations may also be contacted by the university to communicate during emergencies or weather-related events.
Information related to your experience at the University at Buffalo will be sent by UB offices to your UBmail account. Some emails may have time sensitive information. Don’t miss out on class registration because you did not read your email.
