  • Texting: Text is the best way to receive NinerAlerts. Texts are only sent in situations of imminent threat to campus or if there are operational changes (ex: classes canceled because of snow). You may sign up by sending a text message to 67283 with the keyword UNCCharlotteAlerts. Enrollment in text messages lasts for one year, and you may cancel at any time. To learn more about the opt-in text message alerts, review the FAQs on the NinerAlerts page.
  • Email: Emails are sent in all alert situations, including automatic National Weather Service alerts. If you wish to receive NinerAlert emails, please complete this form. Your enrollment will last as long as your student is enrolled at the University.
