UT Arlington employs a multi-tiered emergency communication system to keep our community informed about emergency situations and rapidly changing conditions, from hazardous weather and campus closures to building emergencies and life-threatening criminal activity.
MavAlert keeps the University community informed in the event of a campus emergency by sending early warning text and voice messages to phones, email accounts, and other registered communications devices. Students, faculty, and staff should update their phone numbers through MyMav. YOU MUST ENTER A MOBILE PHONE NUMBER in your online MyMav record and label it "Mobile" to enable MavAlert emergency notifications via text message.
Please note: Students, faculty and staff may opt out of receiving MavAlert emergency text messages by logging into MyMav at uta.edu/mymav and following the "MavAlert Opt-Out" link in the right column of the page. MavAlert emergency notifications are sent to all uta.edu email addresses.
This campus-wide loudspeaker system is activated by campus police dispatchers in the event of a life-threatening emergency. The University’s Outdoor Warning System consists of a combination of chimes and live or prerecorded announcements.
To quickly spread essential information, campus closings and emergency notifications are provided to external media, including television and radio stations and online news sites.
Important information about campus closings and other critical situations is available at 866-258-4913.
