UTAlert: The University of Toronto's alert system

What is UTAlert?

UTAlert is a service that allows the University to quickly send important messages via Email, SMS Text and Mobile App push notifications. UTAlert complements other University communications channels, such as websites and social media.

All current members of the University community are automatically subscribed to the system for University-issued mass notifications using their official U of T email address.

All students, faculty, staff and librarians should add a cell phone number to receive 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.

For more information, please consult our frequently asked questions about UTAlert page.
