Triton Alert Emergency Notifications

Learn how the Triton Alert emergency notification system works.

Triton Alert 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 and SMS (text messaging). Notifications are managed through two separate user portals:

Your UC San Diego email account is already registered to receive Triton Alert emergency email notifications if you are part of the campus community (e.g., students, academics, and staff). You must, however, add your phone devices if you wish to receive SMS (text messaging).

All Triton Alert users are responsible for maintaining their account profiles (e.g., add or remove devices, update phone numbers, opt-out status, etc.).
