UofT Alert

Welcome to the University of Toronto's Alert System


What is UTAlert?

This service will allow the University to quickly send important messages via telephone, email and text.

Alert complements other University communications channels such as websites and social media.

How do I enter my Data?

All current members of the University community will automatically be subscribed to the system for University-issued mass notifications using their official U of T contact information. With UTAlert, you may add additional contact information including a number for 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.

Just click "Register/Update" to confirm your information. You will need your UTORid.

You may also add additional contact information including:

  • Voice mail to a personal phone number
  • Text messages to your cell phone*
  • E-mail to personal email accounts.

*If you have opted to receive text notifications, you will receive a monthly text reminder of your subscription; no action is required

If you encounter problems registering for or updating UTAlert, please contact its@utoronto.ca

What messages will I receive?

We'll test the system in the Spring and Fall every year. These messages will be clearly marked as tests.

Additionally, you may sign up to have University of Toronto messages, such as weather-related cancellations or closures, sent to you. Select the "Outreach" section to add additional information.
