UVA’s Office of Emergency Management facilitates preparedness activities, organizes and coordinates the University’s response and recovery efforts, and maintains mitigation strategies based on the hazards that make us most vulnerable.
All members of the University community with a valid UVA email are automatically enrolled to receive emergency emails, and a text message to those who have registered their mobile phone number with the University during orientation or onboarding. They can also add emails and mobile phone numbers to their UVA Alerts account of family/contacts. UVA members can receive desktop pop-up alerts by installing Alertus.
Members of the public can subscribe to UVA text alerts by texting "UVA" to 226787.
