About This Page

When a situation arises in which the university determines that immediate action is required, a Radford Alert is issued. Radford Alert allow students, faculty, and staff to receive urgent notifications by campus email, desktop notification, outdoor warning system, phone message, and/or text message.  All Radford University students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled into Radford Alert.  Family, friends, visitors, and others may opt-in through SMS messaging to receive Radford Alert notifications.

In the event a Radford Alert is issued on campus, this website will be updated frequently with instructions and information about the incident, campus services and resources available to the campus community.

Remember that it may take time for authorities to investigate the situation, verify the facts and provide the campus with instructions or updates. Do not call 911 or University Police for general information. The University Status page website will provide new details as quickly as possible.

In an emergency that requires immediate help, call 911. You can also use the Radford Safe app to report an emergency, crime or suspicious activity.

All members of the Radford University community should take steps to ensure their own safety and the safety of others in an emergency. Know your role in an emergency and update your contact information with the university. Preparedness information is also be available through the Office of Emergency Management.
