Emergency Notification System

The Campus Emergency Notification System (CENS) is designed to rapidly notify the campus community in the event of an emergency.  Should an emergency arise, authorized personnel will activate the system, transmitting a timely notification and directions for community members.  

We must emphasize, this system will only be utilized for two reasons.  The first is in the event of an emergency.  The second is periodic system testing – once per semester a test message will be transmitted.  These tests will be announced well in advance and worded appropriately to ensure all recipients are aware the message is a test.

The Campus Emergency Notification System (CENS) provides for up to ten different contact means for students, faculty, and staff, including:

  • University telephone numbers
  • Home telephone numbers
  • Cellular telephone numbers
  • E-mail
  • SMS text message
  • Parent’s telephone numbers

University-provided contact means will automatically be included in this system.  In addition, we encourage you to provide updated information for your other contact means.  Doing so will enhance our ability to contact you rapidly.  You may update your contact information at any time at the University of Dayton’s “address” web page --  You must log in to this page using your LDAP password in order to update your personal contact information.   The University of Dayton will not share this information.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Campus Emergency Notification System, please contact Randy Groesbeck, Campus Communications and Physical Security Administrator.
