Welcome to the Student Life portal for emergency communications. In these pages, you will find a wide range of information that will help you to prepare for emergencies, including planning tips, area resources, and campus contacts. Familiarize yourself with these resources so you know whom to call upon when you need assistance—in an emergency, or in your every day life at Kettering.

Kettering Alert, the University's emergency notification system, makes it possible for us to send critical news and information to the Kettering community during campus emergencies, including weather-related closures. Students may opt-in to receive cell phone text and voicemail messages, alerting them to campus emergencies and recommending a course of action to promote safety. To register, visit the Kettering Alert web site. We encourage all Kettering students to participate in this emergency notification system.
