An automated notification system enables campus police or college administrators to contact the community in case of an urgent and serious emergency.

Students, faculty, and staff can be contacted by text message, voicemail and email with public safety information. For emergency situations that do not pose a threat to public safety, information will be communicated via the email system and Wellesley's website www.wellesley.edu
