About Alert Carolina

Alert Carolina, a safety and awareness initiative launched in 2008, plays an instrumental role in supporting the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s overall efforts to communicate about an emergency or a situation affecting the safety and health of the campus community.

In an emergency or dangerous situation, the University will post safety-related announcements at this website, along with updates, information and other resources.

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 UNC Police Department for general information. The Alert Carolina website will provide new details as quickly as possible.
