alert system

In the event of a campus-wide emergency, Union College has a comprehensive communication system—Union Alert—in place to send emergency text messages to faculty, staff, and students. This system will only be used for emergency communications.

During an emergency, Union Alert will distribute information to the campus community via:

  • Text messages—Union Alert text messages to registered users
  • Audio—Tornado siren and PA system
  • People—Resident assistants and area coordinators

Students and employees can register for the Union Alert text messages on Portal.
