Illini-Alert

Get notified when emergencies happen.

Illini-Alert is used for incidents which present an imminent threat to life, health, or safety to the general campus population. These messages provide emergency information and instructions for personal protective actions.

Illini-Alert sends email and text messages, posts to Facebook and Twitter, and triggers the Emergency Web Alert System for university websites.

Email

All current University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students, faculty, and staff will receive Illini-Alert messages through their NetID@illinois.edu email addresses. If you do not have an @illinois.edu email address, enroll at emergency.illinois.edu.

Text Messages

All current University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students, faculty, and staff will be prompted to provide a cell phone number to receive emergency text messages and may register up to three cell phone numbers and three email addresses. Those prompted may opt out, but everyone is strongly encouraged to enroll at emergency.illinois.edu. Anyone else can receive Illini-Alert messages by cell phone by sending a text message to 40404 with the text “follow IlliniAlert.”
