Text reading "Register/Update"In the rare event of an emergency on campus, getting clear and timely information to everyone at UTM is critical. UTAlert is a service that allows the university to quickly send important messages via telephone, email, text and broadcast computer message.

UTAlert complements other university communications channels such as our website and social media accounts.

All current members of the university community will automatically be subscribed to the system for emergency messaging using their official U of T contact information. With UTAlert, you may add additional contact information including a number for text messages. The university does not charge you for this service.

Depending on your service plan, your mobile phone carrier may charge you a fee when you receive a message. Despite this, you are strongly encouraged not to opt out, as these messages are important to your safety and security.

Aside from actual emergency messages, we'll test the system in October and March every year. These messages will be clearly marked as tests.

Just click "Register/Update" to confirm your information. You will need your UTORid.

You may also add additional contact information including:

  • Voice mail to a personal phone number
  • Text messages to your mobile phone
  • E-mail to personal email accounts.

If you encounter problems updating UTAlert, please contact its.help@utoronto.ca
