CUNY Alert

CUNY A!ert is a new emergency notification system that will enable the University’s campuses to advise students, faculty and staff of an emergency (a severe hurricane or snowstorm, for example) and provide timely information to protect lives and minimize campus disruption. CUNY has worked with the State Emergency Management Office to utilize the state’s all-hazards alert and notification system, NY-Alert, for use by the CUNY campuses including City Tech. Depending upon the severity of the incident, CUNY A!ert messages can range from specific instructions to general warnings. These notifications will be sent to members of your campus community who have signed up for CUNY A!ert. Messages can be received via cell phone (text and/or voice), land line telephone and e-mail. You must “opt-in” to receive alerts, and you can choose your preferred format or formats to receive the messages. Stay alert! Sign up for CUNY A!ert at City Tech today!

How to Sign Up for CUNY Alert?

To sign up for CUNY A!ert at City Tech visit for step-by-step instructions. You'll be asked to provide at least one email address. You may also include a cell phone number and a provider to receive text message alerts and a phone number, either cell or land line, to receive voice alerts. You may list one phone number for each of these options, but you should be aware that the alert system will attempt to contact every number you list. Therefore, we advise that you list your preferred number for text messaging and/or your preferred number for voice messages. We suggest that you avoid using a CUNY phone number so that you can be reached at all times. Be sure to specify City Tech as your CUNY institution when you set up your CUNY A!ert profile.
