How Do I . . . ?: Weather Closings Information

Emergency Notification System

The Connecticut State Colleges and Universities have activated a new alert system that enables college officials to communicate with students, staff, and faculty in emergency situations via multiple contact methods—including email, phone calls and text messages. This is a free* service to members of the college and university communities.

All participants—students, staff and faculty—should update their contact preferences in Banner Self-Service (  You will be able to indicate your preferences for receiving emergency notifications.  You may choose a primary text*, a primary cell phone, email address, and home phone.

The Everbridge Emergency Notification System is a comprehensive system, adopted by the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities to allow colleges to quickly communicate with their campus communities when there are emergency situations or inclement weather closings. All members of the college community are automatically enrolled and required to provide up-to-date contact information, including faculty, staff, students, affiliated staff and long-term guests.

College officials will use the myCommNet Alert system to communicate with faculty, staff and students in the event of weather emergencies (late openings, early closings, all day closings), and life-safety emergencies (lockdowns, evacuations), and other emergencies, as they arise. myCommNet Alert will not be used for standard announcements - these will be posted on the college webpage, Facebook and other communication media.

Please call the IT Help Desk for assistance at 203-285-2040. The Help Desk will be able to guide you on how to edit your contact methods
