UPEI invites students and employees to fully make use of UPEI Emergency Alert—UPEI's emergency mass notification system—by signing up to receive texts during an emergency or for storm closures.

All current students, faculty, and staff with an @upei.ca email have already been automatically entered into the UPEI Emergency Alert system and will receive email messages (the database is updated on a periodic basis to capture new students and employees). However, campus members need to opt-in to receive text notifications.

Visit upei.ca/alert for instructions on how to login, update your profile, and opt-in to receive texts, or read the updated UPEI Emergency Alert instruction guide

If you think you have already updated your UPEI Emergency Alert profile with your cell/smart phone number but still are not receiving texts, email Mark Pharand, Manager, Security Services. UPEI Security Services will also be set up in various locations across campus to assist people in updating their profile and opting-in to receive texts. A schedule and locations will be posted in the coming days via Campus Notices (click here to subscribe).
