Campus Alert System
Keeping the Liberty Community Informed
Liberty University has implemented an emergency notification system that we can use to alert you in the event of certain situations on campus.
We strongly suggest that all members of the Liberty University community sign up for the emergency alerting system. You must sign up in order to receive alerts.
During an emergency, Liberty University may use the notification system in conjunction with other communication measures, such as the outdoor sirens, to alert the Liberty community. We may also use the emergency notification system to alert the community to non-life threatening situations, such as a road or building closure.
Alerts will be sent by the Liberty University Police Department, and include:
- Life-Threatening Situations*
- Hazardous Material Situations
- Road Closings
- School Closings
- Severe Weather
Users can select different types of alerts and chose which alerts go to which devices (for example, road closings sent to email and school closing sent via text message, etc).
Who is eligible to sign up for Emergency Alerts?
The emergency alert system is open to all members of the Liberty University community with a Liberty network account. You can also sign up other individuals, such as a parent or spouse, to receive alerts under your account.
There is no charge or fee for the emergency alerting system. All that is needed to sign up is your Liberty account information, as well as the information for your methods of contact (phone number, etc).
