When parents send a student off to college, they want reassurance that students will be safe in a crisis situation.
The University of Texas at Dallas has a detailed preparedness plan to inform students with accurate updates in case of emergency.
In addition to providing an action plan and personnel skilled in handling crises, UT Dallas is one of only nine universities in the State of Texas to receive the StormReady designation from the National Weather Service. This means the campus has an established 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center, monitors the weather, alerts the public when needed and has a formal hazardous weather plan. Having met the standards for the StormReady designation reflects UT Dallas' commitment to keeping your child and the campus community at large safe.
UT Dallas' homepage should always be the first stop for official information. The most current updates on any emergency situation will reside there.
If the University's server system is ever incapacitated and the homepage is inaccessible, updates will be available via our backup homepage at UTDallas.net.
To learn more about the safety procedures that govern students while they are on campus, visit our Emergency Preparedness page.
Your student can receive up-to-the-minute information on any urgent campus happenings via the University's cellphone text alert system. Encourage your young adult to sign up for the free service when they first enroll.
Emergency messages will also be posted on the University’s official Facebook page, which can be viewed by everyone, even those who do not have a Facebook account of their own.
Families can also obtain information about campus emergencies by calling the University's recorded emergency message line at (972) 883-7669.
