Emergency Notification System

The Ursinus emergency notification system for students, faculty and staff utilizes mobile phones, landline phones and campus email addresses. In the event of an emergency, alerts are sent to the campus community by phone call, text message, and/or email. All students and employees are automatically enrolled with their Ursinus email address and mobile phone number if provided.
