CornellALERT is Cornell’s emergency notification system which sends voice and/or text messages to your registered phone(s) in the event of an imminent threat to the campus community. You must enroll your phone to receive the voice and text alert messages. You can also receive alert messages on your phone by installing the Rave Guardian app and activating it for the Cornell Ithaca Campus.
CornellALERT messages are also sent to the Cornell e-mail addresses of all current students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. You cannot opt out of receiving these e-mail messages.
CornellALERT messages may be sent for natural incidents such as a tornado or other dangerous weather, unnatural events such as an explosive device or active shooter, or if the university changes operating status due to an emergency or weather event.
Crime Alerts are timely warning messages provided by Cornell Police when they learn of reportable crimes on or near campus that may pose a serious or continuing threat to the Cornell community. Their purpose is to provide information on how you can protect yourself against a specific threatening circumstance, which may be ongoing, or a recent occurrence that remains unsolved and continues to pose a threat.
Crime Alerts are sent to the Cornell e-mail addresses of all current students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. You cannot opt out of receiving these e-mail messages.
Current emergency and crime alert messages are posted at the CUinfo Alerts website. You can also view current IT, transportation, and facility related alert messages.
