The CUNY Alert system notifies the CUNY community when a natural or manufactured disaster strikes. To ensure that you receive CUNY Alerts at your desired contact points, we will be conducting a test of the system for all CUNY students, faculty, and staff on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2022 at 10:11am.

Please be sure to update your contact information including your SMS/Text messaging preferences. You can do this by logging into CUNYfirst and selecting the CUNY Alert tile. Remember that, while students and guest users can unsubscribe from receiving CUNY Alerts, active faculty and staff cannot.

For more information on CUNY Alert, including managing your preferences and unsubscribing from CUNY Alert, visit If you continue to have questions or concerns, please contact your Campus Help Desks.

Thank you for reviewing and updating your information.
