IIT Emergency Communication System Needs Your Action

A new IIT Alert system is now in place to send immediate emails, text, and voice mail messages to active IIT faculty, staff, and students in the event of severe weather or an emergency that affects the safety of the IIT community on any of our campuses.

Alerts are sent to IIT account holders including all,,,, and active email addresses. In order to ensure that the emergency alerts are received in a timely manner, please follow the three steps below to add mobile phone numbers (type without adding periods or hyphens), confirm your IIT email address and select additional alert preferences. For example, you can select the option to receive emergency alerts via text and voice mail messages, and non-IIT email addresses.

Please review your account as soon as possible to ensure you continue to receive IIT Alert notifications:

1. Click here and use your myIIT username (not your full email address) and password.

2. Enter your mobile phone number (type without adding periods or hyphens) and check the additional methods in which you would like to receive IIT Alert messages (these include text and voice messages and non-IIT email addresses). Note: In the event of an emergency, all account holders will automatically receive an email sent to their IIT email account.

3. Save the form. Once you are finished, logout or close the browser.

If you have any questions about this process, email Office of Technology Services (OTS) Support Desk at or call 312.567.3375.

Note: If you sign up to receive text messages, you will receive a “send notify SMS” message from This message indicates that your mobile phone number has been added to the system successfully.
