     Emergency Notification

    In case of campus emergencies, the University uses multiple communications to notify the campus community, including campus police, email, the University home page and City Watch. City Watch is the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s emergency notification text messaging system. Although only UWL students, faculty, and staff can register for City Watch, students can sign up parents, other family members, or friends by designating more than one mobile device to their account.
