Campus Alert System
The Universities at Shady Grove campus alert system allows the University to contact you during an emergency by sending text messages to your:
- E-mail (school, personal, other)
- Cell phone
- Blackberry type device.
When an emergency occurs, authorized senders will instantly notify you using the Omnilert system. You will be connected to real-time updates, instructions on where to go, what to do, who to contact and other critical information. In addition to emergencies this system can be used to communicate weather, traffic, and other information.
NOTE: Accounts are not automatically created. You must create an account before you can log in to modify the account.
In the event of inclement weather or other emergency conditions, you should follow delays and closures for the "Universities at Shady Grove or USM Shady Grove Center," rather than any individual participating USM institution. Closures and delays will be sent over the Omnilert notification system, as well as being reported on local radio and television news stations. You may also call USG at 301-738-6000 for recorded updates related to closures or delays.
Emergency Preparedness / Crime Prevention
In addition to the text alert system the University maintains several email listservs designed to communicate critical information to students faculty and staff. This system will be used to notify the community of emergency situations as well as past crimes that could present a future threat to the community. Lastly the University can use its telecom system to send out a "broadcast" to all phones on the system. This is in the form of a recorded message.
