Emergency Notifications & Communications

The safety of the UMass Dartmouth community is of the utmost importance. 

To keep students, faculty, staff, and visitors informed about emergency alerts and other important information related to university operations, UMass Dartmouth uses the following communications methods:

  • Text Messaging: Brief SMS messages are sent through the UMassD Alert System to mobile phones. Review your UMassD Alert contact info to make sure your information is accurate.
  • Phone Calls: Automated calls are sent through the UMassD Alert System. Review your UMassD Alert contact info to make sure your information is accurate.
  • Emails: Sent through the UMassD Alert System and other official university accounts to UMassD email addresses.
  • Social Media: The university will post emergency alerts and other important information related to university operations on its Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
  • University website: The university will use umassd.edu to post emergency alerts and other important information on university operations. A banner at the top of each website will direct individuals to the Campus Advisory website.
  • Emergency Broadcast Speaker: A high-powered intercom speaker that can be heard anywhere on campus and is used when traditional forms of communication are potentially offline.

The UMassD Alert System (formerly known as MyAlert) delivers emergency alerts and important notifications related to university operations via different communications channels. It is vital that you review your UMassD Alert contact info to make sure your contact information is accurate.
