Emergency Alert & Notification System

Concordia University uses Connect-ED to provide the campus with an emergency alert and notification system. Connect-ED enables Concordia leadership to immediately send emergency messages using all the common modes of electronic 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 devices for the hearing impaired



Immediately notifying all individuals affected is crucial in emergency situations. All students along with full- and part-time faculty and staff are highly encouraged to enter/verify this notification information.

To enter and/or verify emergency notification information in MyInfo:

  • Log on at myinfo.concordia.edu using your CTX ID and PIN.
  • Select the "Personal Information" link from the main menu.
  • Select the "Emergency Notification Information" link from the Personal Information menu.
  • Make changes as appropriate.

In the event a building must be evacuated, please proceed to the main parking Lot C just west of Building E and north of Building G. Stay clear of any emergency vehicles.

If a major emergency requires establishing a campus "emergency operations center" (EOC), such a facility will be implemented in the Blackbox Theater in Building B (B-230).

For students, faculty, and staff located at Remote Sites:

If you choose to do so, you may fill out the form below to opt-out of the emergency alert and notification system, meaning you will not receive any notification in the event of an emergency.
