U of G Alert Sign-Up - Guelph Campus

U of G Alert is the University’s critical incident notification system. It sends critical alerts to registered email addresses and phones (texts and calls) when an incident happens on campus.  Your U of G email is automatically registered and we encourge all members of the university community to add at least one additional contact path.


Please note that the University is changing vendor in late January and all existing OPT-IN data for students, staff and faculty will be transferred to the new system.  If you need to update your contact data, please send an email to cec@uoguelph.ca with your number or email address and we can update if for you.  Once the new system is up and running, this page will be updates with new instructions.  For now, all links have been removed.

NOTICE TO NEW STUDENTS: Please be aware that you will not be registered in U of G Alert until the start of your first semester.  If you try to access your U of G Alert account before then, your login attempt will fail.  Please do come back here to update your contact paths once you have started classes.  Thank you.
