Emergency text-messaging service (Z-Alert)
Students, parents, faculty and staff can sign up for UA's free Z-Alert text-messaging service.
Text messages will be sent when campus closes or when a situation arises that immediately affects safety.
UA's text-messaging is handled by a service called e2Campus.
Important! Once you sign up, you'll immediately receive a text from "795-16." Follow the instructions in that text to validate your subscription. You must reply to finish the subscription process!
The message will refer to a company called Omnilert. Omnilert provides UA's text messaging service.
Students are able to enroll parents and others in UA's Z-Alert text-messaging service.
The student will need to log-in using his or her UANet ID and password. Once logged in, select the Services tab, then under the student's cell phone number, another number can be added.
Important! Students: Once you sign up an additional number, the phone associated with that number will immediately receive a text from "795-16." Reply to that message and the registration will be confirmed. The subscription process is not completed until the reply is sent! The message will make reference to a company called Omnilert.
The University is not charging for the Z-Alert service; however, carrier charges may apply.
Even with Z-Alert, the University will continue to relay safety information via e-mail, the Web and other means.
Users may unsubscribe at any time. The easiest way is to reply "stop" to the next text alert that you receive from us. Or log-in, select the Services tab and next to your cell number, select Make Inactive.
The University will periodically test the Z-Alert system to assure that it is working properly. We will announce the tests ahead of time by sending an e-mail to students, faculty and staff. The test Z-Alert message will clearly state that we are conducting a test.
