In order to keep in contact with the University and events happening on campus, students are required to update their Emergency Contact information before arriving at UCSC. Encourage your student to follow the directions on how to update their contact information and emergency information on the portal.
CruzAlert is UCSC's emergency notification system, which is used to quickly communicate information during emergency situations. CruzAlert delivers voice messages to all phones and text messages to cell phones. The system can also deliver emergency email to UCSC email accounts.
