Public Safety

PioALERT is the emergency notification system that enables Carroll University to inform members of the campus community quickly in the event of an emergency. PioALERT uses various communication methods, including text messaging, email and voicemail. Messages will be brief, stating the nature of the situation and suggested action. PioALERT will never be used for promotions and/or marketing communications. Carroll University does not sell or share your information with third parties. Information is kept in strict confidence for university use only.

A major part of this system is the use of text messages to alert for immediate life-threatening situations that are actively occurring.

It is highly recommended that students, faculty and staff sign up to receive PioALERT text messages. To opt in, visit, log in and update your information under Student or Employee > My Info > Emergency Notifications via Text Alerts.

Please note: To receive text alerts, your cell phone must be able to accept text messages. Normal messaging fees might apply for these messages, depending on your cell phone plan.
