In Case of Emergency on Campus, Sign Up for RazALERT Messages Now

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – RazALERT (pronounced raise-alert) is the primary emergency notification system for students, faculty and staff at the University of Arkansas. RazALERT messages are sent any time there is a threat to campus safety.

RazALERT emergency messages are sent automatically to all campus phones and email addresses. Phone and text messages are also sent to personal phones if students, faculty or staff members sign up to receive them.

Inclement Weather notifications are the most common messages sent through the RazALERT system. These are sent when snow, ice or heavy rain force the university to cancel or postpone classes and close or delay business operations. Students, faculty and staff have to sign into the system to receive Inclement Weather notices.

Students can sign up for both types of emergency messages through their UAConnect account. They can update numbers or addresses, add numbers as well, and give permission to receive text and inclement weather messages.

Faculty and staff can sign up and provide their information and permission through their webBASIS accounts.  

More information about emergency communications everything involving safety on campus can be found on the Campus Saftety website.
