About the
Code Maroon Emergency Notification System

Code Maroon is Texas A&M University's emergency notification system that gives the University the ability to communicate health and safety information in an emergency.

Texas A&M will use the system only to provide official notification of critical emergencies (i.e. situations that pose an imminent, physical threat to the community).

Emergency Alerts

Code Maroon uses multiple notification methods in a best effort to reach campus members in an emergency. While no emergency communications system can be guaranteed to be effective and reliable in every situation, you are encouraged to sign up to receive text message alerts as one part of your personal emergency preparedness plan.

Contact information you provide on the Code Maroon website will only be used for delivering health and safety emergency information. A ZERO SPAM policy is strictly enforced that prohibits unsolicited messages and the selling of contact information to third-party marketers.

Code Maroon Vendor

Texas A&M selected AtHoc, Inc. to provide its campus-wide emergency alert system. AtHoc's system uses a single, integrated system to send alerts.

Texas A&M's goal is to reach as many people as possible in an emergency and AtHoc provides the most robust system. AtHoc is based in San Mateo, California, and is at the forefront of mass notification systems.

Code Maroon Deletion Policy

In order to ensure that Code Maroon alerts are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible, periodic checks are done to identify registrants who are no longer directly affiliated with Texas A&M University.

If our records indicate that a registrant is no longer a member of the student body or employed by the university, Code Maroon will send an email notice to the email address they provided during registration. Unless a justification is provided to that email within 15 days, the registrant will be scheduled for deletion from the Code Maroon system.
