AlertVU test scheduled for Sept. 18

Vanderbilt University Public Safety will conduct a test of the AlertVU emergency notification system on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 10 a.m.

AlertVU rapidly sends notification messages in the event of an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community, such as a tornado or active shooter.

All Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the system using their Vanderbilt email address.

Cell phone numbers provided by students to the university are also automatically entered in the AlertVU database. Faculty and staff can register other contact points, such as cell or home phone numbers or personal email accounts to receive AlertVU messages when they are away from their Vanderbilt email accounts.

Please be sure to update emergency contact information annually.

  • Students can update their information through the YES system.
  • Faculty and staff members can update their information through Oracle.
