UP Alert Emergency Broadcast System | University of Portland

UP Alert Emergency Broadcast System

The University of Portland is committed to comprehensive, real-time communication in the event of a campus emergency including natural disasters, weapons-bearing individuals, and other situations that pose an immediate threat to the security and safety of those on campus.

UP Alert is an automated communication system that simultaneously sends voice and e-mail messages to all students, faculty and staff to notify you in the event of a campus emergency.

The University requests your cooperation to ensure you will receive emergency messages wherever you may be.

Please log on to PilotsUP to register for this service by submitting an emergency non-University email address and cell phone number. Your University email address and office or campus phone number will automatically be included in your contact information.

Your contact information will not be shared or distributed and you will only receive a message alert if an extreme emergency affects the campus.

If you have questions regarding the system, please review our Frequently Asked Questions or contact Campus Safety at campussafety@up.edu or 503.943.7161.

Sign up to receive instant alerts direct to your cell phone and/or email account at PilotsUP. Look for "UP Alert Emergency Notification Info" on the lower right portion of the screen, or by scrolling down on a mobile device.  

NOTE: Standard text messaging rates may apply. Check with your cellular provider to verify your text messaging plan and associated costs.

In consideration for your use of the UP Alert system, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself, and (b) maintain and promptly update the Subscription Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or is incomplete, you understand that any notifications sent via the UP Alert Automated Notification System may not reach you.

The contact data you enter will be provided to a third party (Informacast Fusion) for purposes of notifying you in the event of an emergency. No personal information other than directory information (as defined in the Bulletin) will be provided to the third party vendor. The third party vendor has agreed that they have no right to use your contact information for any purpose other than notifying you via UP Alert. They do not have rights to sell, disclose or trade your contact information. When required by law (e.g., in compliance with a subpoena or court order) your contact information may be disclosed. Only the individuals employed by the University of Portland and Informacast Fusion who must use this information to administer and manage UP Alert will have access to your contact information.
