UNCW Emergency Communication Tools

UNCW utilizes several communication tools in the event of an emergency, such as: the UNCW homepage, the UNCW Alert site (this website), UNCW Facebook, UNCW Twitter, the Seahawk Siren Warning System, the campus entrance marquee, the emergency hotline (910-962-3991), the CHWK channel (on campus), local media outlets and UNCW Alert mass emails, phone calls and/or text messages for faculty, staff and students.

Sign up for emergency notifications on your phone: 

Students, faculty and staff who voluntarily register their cell phone numbers with the university receive UNCW Alert emergency text messages and voicemails during actual emergency situations and campus emergency communication tests.
