Emergency Notifications

UNE uses Rave Mobile Safety, an emergency notification service that provides faculty, professional staff, and students with timely information and instructions during emergencies or other urgent situations that may directly affect their well-being. 

This platform allows us to stay connected with the UNE community and provide critical information in real time during emergency situations on campus or in the surrounding communities. Included in the platform is the Rave Guardian mobile app for smartphones, available for download on the App Store and Google Play.

Within the Rave Guardian app, you can:

  • Make emergency calls to 911, based on your current location
  • Call UNE Safety and Security to request assistance
  • Reach out to campus resources (Counseling Center, Student Health, Title IX, etc.) by phone or access information from the UNE website
  • Create a personalized safety timer to alert friends, family, or Safety and Security in the event of an issue

To ensure you receive these important messages log in to U-Online and verify the contact information under the “Personal Information and Settings Menu” then “UNE Alert Notification.” You are able to add up to three phone numbers (cell phone or landlines) and an email address.
