  • NJCU Emergency Notification System GothicAlert

    NJCU has an  Emergency Notification System (ENS), called  GothicAlert which allows the University to contact the community in the event of an emergency by sending messages via:

    • Text message
    • Voice message (mobile or land-line)
    • E-mail

    When an emergency occurs that requires the NJCU community's attention or action, GothicAlert will be activated and you will be notified by the methods noted above using the personal information you have provided. GothicAlert will cycle through each contact method three times or until you confirm receipt. Of course, if you have not provided contact information for text messaging, for example, GothicAlert will not attempt to send you an text message. It is imperative that your contact information is accurate and up to date in order for you to receive emergency notifications.
