Enroll in Mobile Alert

Mobile Alert is a broadcasting messaging system utilized by the University of West Florida in emergency situations. All official UWF email accounts are automatically registered with Mobile Alert.

However, students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to add a cell phone number for text message notifications. Additionally, the UWF community can add email addresses and cell phone numbers for outside parties, such as parents, spouses and other contacts. Mobile Alert also supports text message notifications for international cell phone numbers. International text alerts are one-way - recipients cannot reply to a text message sent to an international number.

In order to add additional contacts and information to Mobile Alert, UWF students, faculty and staff must log in to MyUWF and search for Mobile Alert.

Note: Students, faculty and staff accessing Mobile Alert for the first time must first log in to MyUWF and search for "Contact and Privacy Information," then activate emergency messages through the "Text Notifications" tab.

  • To add international phone numbers, log in to Mobile Alert through MyUWF.
  • Enter a plus sign (+) followed by the country code, any special codes required by the country, followed by the number, with no punctuation or spaces other than the plus sign.

This system is only utilized in the event that the University needs to communicate important information regarding an emergency or situation. The information you provide will not be shared with any other parties or utilized in any other way.
