Notification Methods

To learn what you should do in case of an emergency at the Law School, visit http://law.tamu.edu/emergency-information. In an actual emergency, Texas A&M Law will post additional emergency updates and announcements to their home page as they become available. Texas A&M Law will also communicate important emergency information with local television and radio outlets.

Text Message

Text messaging is a faster notification method than email, so we encourage campus members to register for text message alerts. Texas A&M University students, faculty and staff who have a Texas A&M NetID and password can register one number to receive SMS text message alerts. By limiting this feature to campus members, emergency notifications can be delivered as quickly as possible. You must sign up to receive text message alerts.

Texas A&M Email

Code Maroon emergency alerts will automatically be sent to all Texas A&M Gmail accounts ending with "@email.tamu.edu" and Texas A&M Exchange email addresses. Recent tests indicate text messaging is a faster notification method than email, so we encourage campus members to register for text message alerts and Texas A&M Exchange accounts managed by Texas A&M Information Technology.

Computer Alerts

Texas A&M University students, faculty and staff can receive Code Maroon computer alerts by installing the Desktop Notifier on personal computers or laptops. The alerts will only be received if your computer is connected to the Texas A&M Network. Contact your IT support staff to see whether you have the Desktop Notifier installed on your university-owned computer.
