K-State Alerts

K-State Alerts is Kansas State University's emergency notification system that gives campus authorities the ability to communicate emergency information quickly to the university community.

How they work

The campus community is notified through many channels, including text messaging, alert beacons and automated phone calls.

When they’re used
  • A dangerous condition exists on campus
  • A decision to close the campus has been made
  • A decision to reopen the campus following a forced closure has been made
To receive notifications by text messaging or automated phone call, visit: k-state.edu/safety/alerts
