UC Directory Expand
Still learning new faces, names, numbers and more? Look up new contacts in the UC Directory to find out key information like phone numbers, mail locations and email addresses.
Emergency Text Messaging Expand
Every cell-phone number provided to UC is automatically opted into the Emergency Text Message program. In case of emergency, UC Public Safety will send a text message specifying what has happened and where it occurred. Although the university offers the ability to opt-out of receiving emergency messages, UC Public Safety recommends that you do not opt out. In an emergency, accurate and up-to-date information may be critical to your safety and security.
The university will test the system occasionally to determine if it is working properly, but you will not receive non-emergency or advertising messages. UC will not sell your information. The user is responsible for any charges from their phone carrier.
