Emergency Notification System (ENS)
UST Emergency Notification Alerts icon The University of St. Thomas has taken steps to implement an Emergency Notification System (ENS) to communicate important alerts and emergency response information to students, faculty and staff.

The ENS system will enable campus leaders to schedule; send and track personalized voice messages to as many as six phone numbers per person, and immediately sends messages via four different modes of communication:

  • Voice messages to home, work, and cell phones
  • Text messages to cell phones, PDAs and other text-based devices
  • Written messages to e-mail accounts
  • Messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired.
