Alertus will only work while on the UMBC network.


The Alertus desktop client is a companion product to the UMBC E2Campus alert system. It can be installed on your Windows or Apple machine to provide an additional layer of notification. Messages sent via the E2Campus text messaging system will also be sent to any machine that has the Alertus desktop client installed. Questions about emergency notifications should be directed to the campus police department.
