Elon University also communicates emergency information through email, text messaging, mobile apps, social media and more. Campus safety leaders strongly recommend that students and employees take the following steps for staying up to date on crisis situations.

E-ALERT



REGISTER for EMERGENCY TEXT MESSAGES
The university sends urgent news to cell phones. Once you sign up for E-Alert - the university's primary source for campus crisis information and the most important service for which to register - Elon can text your cell phone and email you timely information about emergencies, class cancellations, and inclement weather information.

LiveSafe gives users two-way communication direct to Campus Safety & Police. Students and employees can share information - anonymously, if they choose to - through text, photo or video directly from their smart phones. Additionally, app users can receive important broadcast notifications sent by the Elon University Police Department. With a built-in SafeWalk feature, students also will be able to invite others to “virtually escort” them by monitoring their location on a map.
