Dear UNT community,

UNT will conduct the next test of its Eagle Alert system on Friday, Jan. 28.

The Eagle Alert system is used to notify the UNT community about emergency situations and university closings and is tested quarterly.

Because the Eagle Alert system is intended to communicate vital, urgent information in potentially life-threatening situations, the university maintains strict criteria for initiating an alert to the community. If you are on, or near, campus and receive an Eagle Alert, it is crucial that you pay attention to the alert. Learn more about the types of Eagle Alerts and their criteria.

In addition to receiving text and voice messages by phone, the system will test the feature that overrides all computers on campus at UNT and Frisco. During the test, computer and presentation screens will display a full-screen test alert. Users will have the option to click out of the screen after the alert has displayed.

All students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the Eagle Alert system using the telephone numbers provided to UNT during registration or the hiring process. You should check your contact information regularly and update it as soon as it changes by logging in at if you are a student or faculty member, or at if you are a staff member.

UNT Emergency Management and Safety Services encourages you to review and become familiar with UNT's emergency response guidelines and evacuation procedures or via the Mean Green Ready app. The app is available for free on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
