CU Denver Alerts_

Communication plays a critical role before, during, and after any emergency or disaster. CU Denver works in partnership with Auraria to provide emergency notifications to the campus community.

There are two types of emergency notifications:

  • CU Alerts!
  • Campus Timely Warnings

CU Alerts!


The CU Denver Emergency Notification System (CU Alerts!) provides campus emergency alerts via text and/or email when conditions develop on or near CU Denver/Auraria, which pose an imminent threat of danger to the Campus Community.

Examples may include:

  • Physical plant issues (e.g., natural gas leak, etc.)
  • Inclement weather closures or delays
  • Campus safety threats (e.g., robbery, active harmer, bomb threat, etc.)
  • Hazmat situations

Campus Timely Warnings


When a specific crime covered by the Clery Act occurs, the Auraria Campus Police Department is required to evaluate if there is a serious or ongoing threat to the campus community to determine if a Timely Warning email needs to be issued to all faculty, staff, and students.
