UT ALERT Sign up now!


The UT ALERT text messaging service is designed to enhance and improve communication and keep the campus community informed during an emergency.

The service allows students, faculty, and staff to "opt in" to be notified via text message in the event of an emergency or campus closure. The message can also be sent to a designated e-mail address, pager, smartphone, or tablet.

The service will only be used only for emergency contact purposes. It will not be used to distribute advertising or other unsolicited content. Subscribers do not pay a fee for the service other than regular fees associated with text messaging services.

Signing up for UT ALERT is simple.

All you need are:

  • Your UT NetID and password. (What's my NetID?)
  • The number of the mobile device that will receive the text messages.
  • The mobile device that you are registering.

Once registered, you can log in at any time to update your information.



To cease receiving UT ALERT text messages, text the word "STOP" to 44515. You must log in to your account, however, to be completely removed from the UT ALERT service and stop receiving the e-mail messages.
