Northeastern University is committed to providing members of its community with a safe and secure place in which to live, work and study.
NU ALERT – Emergency broadcast communication messages
In case of emergency or crisis situations that require immediate notification, University officials will deploy the NU ALERT system, which sends email, voicemail and text messages to students, faculty and staff. NU ALERT is intended to communicate pertinent information and, when appropriate, provide directions to those in the affected area(s).
A record of past Timely Warnings and NU Alert Emergency Notifications for our campus community can be found on the NUPD website.
Examples of crisis situations range from snow storms to national emergencies that have a local impact.
PLEASE NOTE: The NU ALERT system broadcasts messages to the email addresses and telephone numbers students, faculty and staff have provided the University. It is important that the information is accurate and up to date. Students, faculty and staff can change or update their contact information by logging into the portal at my.northeastern.edu and following the instructions. The information you provide is kept completely confidential and will only be used to provide updates to the NU ALERT system.
