Eagle Alert test scheduled for Sept. 27

Sept. 24, 2019

Dear UNT community,

UNT will conduct the fall test of its Eagle Alert system Friday, Sept. 27. Tests will be conducted for both UNT in Denton and in Frisco on that day.

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

In addition to text and voice messages by phone, the system will test the feature that overrides most computers operated by UNT in offices, classrooms and public spaces on campus. During the test, computer screens, presentation screens and digital signs 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.
