Emergency information, when and where you need it

AlertVU rapidly sends messages to the delivery points the user has chosen—cell phone (voice or text), land line, and Vanderbilt email account—in the event of an emergency that poses an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community. Examples of such a threat include a tornado forecasted to strike Vanderbilt, or an active shooter on campus.

All Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the system using their Vanderbilt email address. Update your contact information to include phone numbers for voice and text alerts using the links below
