Triton Alert Emergency Notifications

Learn how the Triton Alert emergency notification system works.

The UC San Diego Triton Alert emergency notification system uses a phone and email notification system to keep the campus community updated in emergency situations. These communications are carried out through the use of e-mail, SMS (text messaging) and voice messaging. Notifications are managed through two separate user portals:

  • Campus Community Triton Alert Emergency Notification Portal — Registration for Triton Alert emergency email notifications occurs automatically for all members of the eligible campus community, including students, staff and academics; members must add phone devices if they wish to receive SMS (text messaging) and voice messaging.
  • Affiliate/Guest Portal — Affiliates must create and register an account in order to receive Triton Alert emergency notifications. (Affiliates are typically defined as visiting scholars or grads, post-grads or -docs, volunteers, retirees, family members of students or clergy.)

All Triton Alert users are responsible for maintaining their account profiles (e.g., add or remove devices, etc.).
