The University of Alberta Emergency Notification System

The University issues an emergency alert when we need to inform you of an urgent event that requires you to take action for your safety.

We use a combination of methods, including the university’s email system, on university computers in labs, through Twitter, through the university's public address systems (in many, but not all, buildings), through the university app, and on the university’s home page.
