The University of Kentucky has an emergency notification system, UK Alert, to communicate official information during an emergency or crisis situation that disrupts normal operation of the campus or threatens the health or safety of members of the campus community.
All University of Kentucky students, staff, and faculty are automatically registered in UK Alert with their official university e-mail address. We encourage students, staff, and faculty to add other contact information such as mobile numbers and personal e-mails to their UK Alert accounts. Parents, media, visitors, and other interested parties may register for UK Alert on a voluntary self-subscription basis.
UK Alert delivers messages to subscribers on a "best effort" basis to the devices registered by each user.
UK Alert is designed for use only when an incident disrupts normal campus operations or threatens the immediate health and safety of the campus community. As such, it is a personalized service designed to complement the other communication tools already used by the university to advise the campus community during other events, crises or emergencies. Examples include:
Effective emergency response requires personal preparedness and planning. We encourage you to edit your UK Alert account to include multiple forms of notification as just one part of your personal emergency preparedness plan.
