Emergency Information Resources

While campus emergencies occur rarely at Kettering, we utilize a variety of resources to communicate with students and their parents when circumstances warrant.  We ask all students and their families to familiarize themselves with our Emergency information resources so they know whom to call upon when they need assistance; in an emergency, or in their everyday lives at Kettering.

Kettering Alert

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. Please encourage your student to participate in this emergency notification system.

Emergency Information Website

We post emergency notices on our Emergency Information Website, located at http://www.kettering.edu/emergency/information-parents   In the event of an emergency, the University will post information and updates, as needed. 

Student Life Staff

The Student Life staff members join many others at Kettering who are committed to creating a productive, enjoyable and safe collegiate experience for all our students. Contact us if you have any questions about our resources, or how your student may take advantage of them.

In Case of Emergency

In the event of an emergency, students should call 9-1-1 from any campus phone or outside call box.  These calls are routed through our Campus Safety office and the desk officer on duty will contact the appropriate first responder(s).  Students may also call 9-1-1 directly from their cell phones.  These calls are routed directly to the Flint Police Department; dispatchers will contact the appropriate first responder(s) and our Campus Safety office.


Please join us in committing to the safety and well-being of all members of the Kettering community. Encourage your student to prepare for emergencies and to call upon us for assistance.
