Emergency Communications

In an effort to relay information to students, faculty and staff in an event of an emergency, UCA utilizes the following methods to deliver emergency notification and information:

  • UCAAlert Mass Notification System
    The UCAAlert System is used to send emergency notifications to the campus community via text message, voice message and e-mail. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to provide their contact information through myUCA.
  • UCA Website
    Information will be posted and updated as needed on uca.edu during an emergency.
  • Safe@UCA App
    Safe@UCA is the official safety app of University of Central Arkansas. It is the only app that integrates with University of Central Arkansas’s safety and security systems. The app will send you important safety alerts and provide instant access to campus safety resources.
  • Safe@UCA Info Line
    The University of Central Arkansas Police Department has established a 24-hour emergency information hotline. Call the Safe@UCA Info Line at (501) 852-INFO (4636) to hear a recorded message about the status of the University and any current alert or safety information. During emergency situations or closures the message will be updated periodically.
  • Safe@UCA E-mail Listserv
    Parents, visitors, neighbors, or students who may not check their official UCA email accounts often may subscribe to the Safe@UCA email listserv with their personal email address via the UCA PD Web site.
  • UCAAlert Outdoor Warning System
    This is an outdoor tone alert/public address system designed to alert persons outside of campus buildings of an emergency situation on campus.
