Emergency Notification System

Connecticut State Colleges & Universities work collaboratively to ensure the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors. Details about the specific health and safety programs are available on the campus websites.

The Board of Regents for Higher Education (BOR) has put in place an Emergency Notification System (ENS) developed by Everbridge at each of its four universities, twelve community colleges, Charter Oak State College and the System Office to provide notification for when an emergency condition is imminent, or a situation exists that threatens the health and safety of individuals.

The ENS will permit the distribution of emergency information via telephone, e-mail, text message and/or voice message. Messages can be provided to land-lines or cell phones. Please do not use your CSCU telephone number.  Individuals will receive information or instructions relative to the specific emergency.
