CU Boulder Alerts - Alertus

What is Alertus?

Alertus is an emergency messaging application integrated with the CU Boulder Alerts program for Windows and macOS. The application will display an alert on the desktop when there is a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of people on campus. Learn more by visiting the CU Boulder Alerts website.

Who can get it?

Alertus is only available to CU Boulder students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. Alertus will alert computers with the application on it regardless of the network they are using, so individuals off campus will get the same information as those on a UCB network.
