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.
To receive emergency text alerts, students, faculty and staff should add mobile phone numbers to their UVA Alerts account. All members of the University community with a valid UVA email are automatically enrolled to receive emergency emails; they can also add emails 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.
