  • Closures are also reported to area media outlets, including Denver TV stations.
  • Notifications of closures are sent to campus phones and computers through voice, e-mail and text messages and to subscribed cell phones through text and voice messages from UNC's Emergency Alert system.

To find out how to sign up your phone, visit http://www.unco.edu/alerts/signup.html.

If you receive an emergency alert saying the university is closed, calling the UNC Police Department to confirm the information is not necessary.
