The University of Georgia encourages all students, faculty and staff to update their emergency contact number(s) in UGAAlert, the University’s primary emergency notification system. Although college campuses are usually safe places, emergencies and disasters do occur. UGA is committed to keeping the campus community as safe as possible through effective communication prior to, during and following emergencies. UGAAlert allows students, faculty and staff to receive emergency messages on multiple devices. Individuals may identify as many as three phone numbers and two email addresses for receiving emergency notifications. Both voice and text messages can be sent to cell phones. To register, opt-in/out, or update your information, a valid UGA MyID is required. Registration, or updating your information, is simple and straightforward. For more information, frequently asked questions, to register, opt-in/out or update your information, visit http://www.ugaalert.uga.edu/ and follow the instructions.
