Reminder: Register Your Mobile Devices to Receive IIT Alert Messages

IIT Alert is Illinois Institute of Technology’s emergency communication system used to send immediate emails, text, and voice mail messages to active university faculty, staff, and students in the event of severe weather or an emergency that affects the safety of the Illinois Tech community on any of our campuses.

Alerts are sent to university account holders including all,,,, and active email addresses. In order to ensure that the emergency alerts are received in a timely manner, click here to confirm your Illinois Tech 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. It takes just a minute to login with your myIIT username and password, and then make your selections.

Anyone who is interested in receiving IIT Alert notifications may register for an IIT Alert account—parents and family members of Illinois Tech students, members of the local community, university alumni, VanderCook College of Music students, individuals affiliated with entities located in Illinois Tech facilities, and others.

If you have any questions about your IIT Alert account, email Office of Technology Services (OTS) Support Desk at or click here.

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