Changes to the Law School Emergency Alert System

As part of the integration of the law school into the University of New Hampshire, the UNH Police Department will assume the public safety responsibility on campus.  An immediate change is that the UNHLaw Alert Emergency Notification System will be replaced by the Roam Secure - UNH Alert System.  This conversion will occur on Monday, January 13, 2014 and require all users of the existing system to register an account with UNH Alerts. 

The UNH Alert System provides rapid communication with community members in the event of an emergency of any type, such as:

  • Weather delays
  • School cancellations through cell phone text messaging and/or e-mail 
  • An on-campus crime in progress
  • Federally required Clery Act notifications for all campus locations

Please note – the UNH Alert system does not send voice messages to your telephone.

The UNH Alert System requires community members to Opt-in

Students, faculty, and staff who choose not to do so will have to consult the law school website, or WMUR (http://www.wmur.com/weather/closings), to learn about school cancellations or curtailed operations. 

Registration is a quick process and will provide you with a fast, reliable, way of being notified about on campus emergencies and curtailed operations for the law school and, if desired, alerts for the Durham and Manchester campus, as well as Granite State College.

To create an account for UNH Alert System go to: https://alert.unh.edu  and enter your personal information.  In the box that requests your affiliation choose ‘UNH Law School’. Family members and other interested parties will have to register separately to receive the updates

All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to register for this service as access to UNH Alert is not established by default, and the existing law school emergency alert system will no longer be used after Monday, January 13, 2014.
