The University of New England is prepared to meet the need for immediate notification as part of its Emergency Response Plan. We have numerous ways of distributing urgent information in the event of an emergency.
To ensure you receive these important messages log in to U-Online and verify the contact information under the “Personal Information and Settings Menu” then “UNE Alert Notification.” You are able to add up to three phone numbers (cell phone or landlines) and an email address.
Rave Mobile Safety
UNE uses Rave Mobile Safety, an emergency notification service that provides faculty, professional staff, and students with timely information and instructions during emergencies or other urgent situations that may directly affect their well-being.
This platform allows us to stay connected with the UNE community and provide critical information in real time during emergency situations on campus or in the surrounding communities, alerts during school closures, and information about weather-related events.
Rave Guardian mobile app
Included in the platform is the Rave Guardian mobile app for smartphones, available for download on the App Store and Google Play.
Within the Rave Guardian app, you can:
- Make emergency calls to 911 based on your current location
- Call UNE Safety and Security to request assistance
- Reach out to campus resources (Counseling Center, Student Health, Title IX, etc.) by phone or access information from the UNE website
- Create a personalized safety timer to alert friends, family, or Safety and Security in the event of an issue
University of New England website (www.une.edu)
The UNE website is a key means of communicating information related to major campus emergencies. Information will be posted on UNE’s homepage www.une.edu and linked to this Emergency Response website.
Recorded emergency announcements are available at UNE’s Emergency status line at (207) 602-2012. Individuals who have entered their cell or landline telephone numbers as emergency contacts will also receive notification by their designated numbers.
Individuals who have entered their email addresses as emergency contact information in U-Online will receive emergency notifications via email.
UNE works with the local news media to disseminate information about routine weather-related school closings, such as those due to snowstorms. These closures are communicated to local news television stations Channel 6, Channel 8 and Channel 13.
