Users are encouraged to add 226-787, 672-83 and 303-492-4636 as “CU-Alert” to their phone contacts to help identify incoming text and/or voice calls. Email messages will be from “CU-Boulder Alerts ”.
All active CU-Boulder students, faculty, staff, and affiliates are either automatically registered or are invited to register to use the CU-Boulder Alerts service.
CU-Boulder transferred the management of your contact information from the alerts.colorado.edu website to the MyCUInfo portal as part of the Fall 2013 registration process. This switch is to ensure all actively enrolled students are capable of receiving email and text emergency notifications starting May 1, 2013. Any information you entered during registration replaced what you previously had in the CU Alert system.
"Emergency Contact” information is used in the event the university needs to contact someone on your behalf should you be involved in or experience a health or safety emergency.
No. Only CU-Boulder community members with a valid colorado.edu (or cufund.org, or cu.edu) e-mail address can register. The CU-Boulder Alerts service is only one of several communication and information sources utilized at CU-Boulder. There are several other sources for emergency information including the campus homepage and the emergency information line (303-492-4636).
Opting out of the text alert portion of the system is strongly discouraged, as the information provided by CU-Boulder Alerts can save your life during an emergency, threatening situation, or at the very least keep you from coming to campus on a snow closure day.
Fortunately, the campus does not use the CU-Boulder Alerts system very often. In some academic terms, the only messages sent to the campus have been a system test message. Situations where CU-Boulder Alerts email and text messages could be issued include severe weather, campus operating status, and imminent dangers affecting our campus community.
The emergency text alert system supports all U.S. mobile carriers. If you do change your mobile phone provider, student do not have to update their carrier information. However, faculty and staff must log in to the system and update their carrier information on their profile page.
Should your mobile number change, you can make the updates online.
No. Your e-mail address and mobile phone number will only be provided to our CU-Boulder Alerts vendor, RAVE Wireless, who will protect the data as stated under FERPA guidelines. For more information on FERPA, please visit http://registrar.colorado.edu/regulations/ferpa_guide.html
Active students cannot unsubscribe from the CU-Boulder Alerts program. Your CU email will always remain registered and used to provide timely warnings and/or emergency notifications for situations that represent a serious or continuing threat to the campus community. If you included a mobile number during registration at some point and would like to now opt out, you can manage your emergency notification information by contacting the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
