Important Message about UMW Alert System

The following message is from the Office of Emergency Management and Safety:

UMW has a new emergency alert notification system, but faculty, staff and students must register with the new system to customize their emergency notices—by text, phone or email—the way they want to receive them.

If you have not yet registered, you will receive a message shortly from the Office of Emergency Management and Safety with step-by-step instructions to set up your account. Please make sure to register and also encourage others in the UMW community to sign up.

If you already have registered and want to make updates  to your account, please visit

For more information, please contact Chris Cash in Emergency Management and Safety at

Please Note: At this time, the alert system is not available to anyone outside the UMW community. The emergency notification system will be available to those outside the UMW community at a later date.
