bruin alert

UCLA uses BruinALERT to alert the UCLA community of a dangerous or potentially dangerous situation. BruinALERT is used only for emergencies. BruinALERT for emergencies that threaten the health or safety of the campus community will be sent as soon as the emergency is verified. BruinALERT will not be used for general information messages such as traffic notices.

How It Works

When we issue a BruinALERT about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a notification. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that  particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

Sign up for Notifications

All UCLA faculty and staff with valid email addresses in the UCLA Campus Directory and students with valid email addresses in MyUCLA are automatically enrolled in BruinALERT to receive email alerts. Students who have entered their cell phone information in MyUCLA are automatically enrolled to receive SMS text messages. Faculty and staff must sign up for text messaging through BruinALERT Website.

Family and friends of UCLA students, staff, and faculty who would also like to receive the BruinALERT text messages may sign up by texting BRUINALERT to 888777.

All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
