Washington University has several methods for communicating critical information directly to you in the event of an emergency on or around campus. To ensure reliability of these methods, periodically test communications are sent using contact information recorded in the Student Information System. For your safety, please be sure to keep your contact information current. Your address fields may be updated via WebSTAC.
You have the right to not participate in the direct emergency communications program. If you will be out of the local area for an extended period of time (studying abroad, completing your dissertation while out of town, etc.), you may want to consider opting out of the emergency notifcations. The "Opt-Out" option can be exercised at WebStAC.
