Have you registered for UVic Emergency Alerts?In case of emergency

UVic Emergency Alerts is a system that allows the university to quickly and efficiently contact students and employees with important information during an emergency.

The system allows UVic to send messages to members of the university community by email, telephone and mobile text messaging. During tests the voicemail message to office and classroom VoIP phone will be broadcast for up to 15 minutes. You can stop the broadcast by lifting the handset.

UVic's Emergency Alerts is part of UVic's overall approach to emergency management, and complements other methods of campus communication. UVic's first priority is the safety and well-being of our students and employees.

The UVic Emergency Alerts System is tested twice a year. Thank you for your patience and cooperation – testing is essential to ensure UVic can provide an effective emergency notification system.
