UVA Alert System Test, June 29th

UVA Alerts is the comprehensive mass notification system that deploys urgent emergency messages to warn people of a threat on Grounds and provide instructions for what to do. The University of Virginia will test all components of the emergency notification system on Tuesday, June 29, from 10:50 am -11:05 am.

The test will include UVA’s siren and public address system, which reaches across Grounds to neighboring streets. 

    New Student Safety Guide

    The University provides many resources to empower students to take responsibility for their own safety. From late night transportation; to confidential tools to report crimes, harassment, or intimidation; to training classes in fire safety and self defense, UVA helps students look out for themselves and each other.

    The University does not take disciplinary action against students who help others get medical attention for emergencies like alcohol poisoning or drug overdose. For signs of alcohol poisoning and other safety tips read the new student safety guide.

    COVID-19 Compliance Reporting

    Compliance Information & Guidance

    If this is an emergency, please call 911.

    Each member of the University Community has a shared responsibility to maintain a healthy and safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Consistent with that responsibility, all students, faculty, and staff who will be on Grounds must comply with public health measures and University policies.

    Effective enforcement relies on commitment by students, faculty, and staff to remind one another of appropriate policies and guidelines, and to hold one another accountable. Acting as engaged bystanders to support and assist members of our shared community is the necessary first step in the University’s accountability process.

    Minor and infrequent non-compliance

    • Minor and infrequent non-compliance is defined as unintentional or accidental violations of the University COVID-19 related public health measures, policies, and guidelines that occur infrequently, without the intent to harm or disrupt, and result in prompt action by the offending party to enter into compliance.
    • Minor and infrequent non-compliance should be addressed at the lowest possible level; reporting is not necessary nor is it encouraged.
    • Any reported minor and infrequent non-compliance will not usually result in follow-up or formal action.

    Significant or repetitive non-compliance

    • Significant non-compliance is defined as intentional or reckless violations of University COVID-19 related public health measures, policies, and guidelines. Such violations include engaging in conduct which intentionally or recklessly threatens the health or safety of the University community.
    • Repetitive non-compliance refers to repeated violations of University COVID-19 related public health measures, policies, and guidelines despite informal feedback and/or bystander engagement.
    • Significant or repetitive non-compliance may result in follow-up or formal action.

    Reporters will receive a verification email that their report was successfully submitted into the Just Report It system. Reporters should not submit multiple reports for the same violation. Depending on the severity of the non-compliance, the reporter and/or person(s) alleged to have been in non-compliance may receive additional outreach from the relevant University department.

    This platform should only be used to report instances of alleged non-compliance of a University public health measure, policy, or guideline. If this is a COVID-19 related facility issue, please submit a work order request in the Facilities Customer Portal. For questions unrelated to COVID-19 compliance, please contact the University’s central COVID phone number (1-877-685-4836) or email (
