Gonzaga University Emergency Notification System (ZagAlert)
Gonzaga University uses an emergency notification system, called ZagAlert, to help ensure the safety and security of our campus community by providing rapid notification of life-saving information during emergencies to members of the Gonzaga community. ZagAlert messages provide important information that empowers recipients to make the best choice possible during an emergency. It is crucial for all students, staff and faculty to be familiar with the protective actions they can take during an emergency. For more information about this, please see the ZagReady Program page on our website.
Employees and students are automatically enrolled in the ZagAlert system via the ZagWeb portal. Parents, family, and other members of the Gonzaga Community can also enroll in the ZagAlert system if they would like to receive these notifications by installing the MyConnect on their mobile device.
Update your Information!
For ZagAlert to be most effective, every member of the Gonzaga community needs to make sure their contact information is updated in the ZagWeb portal on a regular basis. Click here to visit the ZagWeb portal and verify your information. Make sure to include a mobile phone number and a personal, non-Gonzaga email address for the most rapid delivery of information.
It only takes 2 minutes and updating your information is easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Visit ZagWeb
- Click on Enter Secure Area and login using your Zagweb User ID/PIN
- Click on ZagAlert, enter mobile phone number and verify email address, click Submit.
Note: Please provide a non-GU email address and a mobile telephone number, and encourage your emergency contact to install the MyConnect app on their mobile device
ZagAlert may be used to deliver messages to any of the following platforms: email, voice messages or telephone call, or text messages. You may receive notifications on any combination of these platforms, so it is important to keep the information current. In addition, the system will update the Gonzaga University Facebook Page (Facebook.com/GonzagaUniversity) and Gonzaga University Twitter Account (Twitter.com/GonzagaU) with the ZagAlert information. The Gonzaga University Emergency Information web page is also updated with important information.
