Campus Safety and Security Emergency Communications

Everbridge is Columbia’s emergency communications system, used to immediately inform the campus community of emergency situations as well as cancelations and closures caused by emergencies such as severe weather.  

Students will receive text messages, phone calls, and/or emails immediately as news pertaining to any form of emergency situation is issued. In order to receive these updates, students must provide the college up-to-date emergency contact information to ensure they are notified.  

When students enter Columbia, their emergency contact information will be entered into the Everbridge system with the contact information you provided to Columbia during the admissions process. Students may choose to change emergency contact information in MyColumbia.
