zotALERT Upgrade – Add Contacts

zotALERT is UCI’s emergency alert system which uses text messaging and email to quickly provide registered students, faculty, and staff with real-time emergency information.

Add Family and Friends

zotALERT now allows registered users to add up to five contacts (family and friends) to receive the same alerts current users receive during an emergency or critical event. Previously registered mobile phone numbers and email addresses will remain in place.

Use your UCInetID to sign up for zotALERTS and add contacts to zotALERT. Registration is easy and only takes a few minutes.


Please reach out to UCI’s Emergency Management Director Randy Styner (; 949.824.7147) with any questions about the zotALERT system.

Thank you for your commitment to campus safety.
