CUNY Alert is an emergency notification system that enables the University's campuses to advise students, faculty and staff of an emergency (a severe hurricane or snowstorm, for example), and provide timely information to protect lives and minimize campus disruption. CUNY has worked with the State Emergency Management Office to utilize the state's all-hazards alert and notification system, NY-Alert, for use by the CUNY campuses.

Depending upon the severity of the incident, CUNY Alert messages can range from specific instructions to general warnings. These notifications will be sent to members of your campus community who have signed up for CUNY Alert. Messages can be received via cell phone (text and/or voice), land line telephone and e-mail. You must "opt in" to receive alerts, and you can choose your preferred format or formats to receive the messages. Stay alert! Sign up at your campus today for CUNY Alert!
