• YU Alert

  • Getting Started

    Yeshiva University students that have provided an email address as part of their registration process, faculty and staff that currently have an email address ending in either “yu.edu” or “einstein.yu.edu” will automatically be entered into YUALERT emergency notification system. If no further action is taken, any emergency alerts will be sent to the email address you have on file with Yeshiva University.

    However, email is not always the most immediate (or available) way to communicate. In order to receive alerts in the timeliest manner possible, it is strongly recommended that you register your cell phone or SMS (short message service) or texting device with the service. In fact, if your cell phone is text-ready, you should register its number under "cell phone" as well as registering its number under the field “Text Message”. You can register multiple devices, and then be notified at different locations and/or different devices simultaneously.

    If You Don't Have a “yu.edu” or “einstein.yu.edu” Email Address

    If you do not have a YU-supplied email address, you will need to Create an Account. It may take up to a week to propagate your information. Once your account is set up, you'll be notified by email so that you can then register your communication preferences.
    Please Note: You can only register for a new account from an on-campus computer. You must have an email address to register for an account. If you do not have one you may sign up for a free email address from an online provider such as MSN, Google, or AOL. Most cell phones have an email address based on your phone number that you can use to register. Contact your carrier for further details.

    Managing Your Account

    To manage your communication preferences just Log In at anytime. You may manage your preferences from any location.

    If You Leave YU

    If you are a graduating student or a faculty or staff member leaving YU's employ, please be sure to log in to your account and delete all of your contact information. This will ensure that you no longer receive irrelevant notifications. Only you are able to do this.
