Communication plays a critical role before, during, and after any emergency or disaster. CU Anschutz works to provide emergency notifications to the campus community.
There are two types of emergency notifications:
The CU Anschutz Emergency Notification System (CU Alerts!) provides campus emergency alerts via text and/or email when conditions develop on or near CU Anschutz Medical Campus, which pose an imminent threat of danger to the Campus Community.
Examples may include:
As a reminder, CU Anschutz closures and delays do not affect the operations at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital or Children's Hospital or Children's Hospital Colorado. Hospital and clinic operations are normal unless otherwise announced by those facilities. Students, faculty, and staff assigned to work in the clinics/hospitals on campus must report to work unless the hospitals announce changes in their operations
When a specific crime covered by the Clery Act occurs, the CU Anschutz Police is required to evaluate if there is a serious or ongoing threat to the campus community to determine if a Timely Warning email needs to be issued to all faculty, staff, and students.
In an effort to keep information current during an evolving situation, email and text emergency alerts will be brief and may direct the reader to the Emergency Information Line: 877-463-6070.
