SWUALERT Emergency Notification System

The SWUALERT notification system is available to students, faculty, and staff on each of the SWU campuses. You will be automatically enrolled to receive notifications specific to your campus, though you may join other groups as well. Family members can be added by adding additional phone numbers and email addresses to the student's account. The SWUALERT notification system is only used to alert the campus community of emergency situations which may require specific action such as severe weather. The SWUALERT notification system is not used to announce events or programs. For more information on the SWUALERT notification system, contact Campus Safety at 864-508-0107.
