Alertus Campus Rollout

Over the coming months, Information Technology will be rolling out an additional feature for the campus notification system called Alertus. Alertus is a desktop notification client that works in concert with the UNI Alert system. When a UNI Alert is issued, those issuing the alert have the option to include Alertus as a notification step. This will send a full-screen pop up informational window to desktop and laptop computers that have the Alertus notification client installed. The client will be installed for digital signage computers, classrooms, computer labs, and will be available for your office computer as well. The following schedule gives an approximation of when the Alertus client will be rolled out where:

  • Alertus will be installed for all digital signage by April 13th
  • Alertus will be available for you to install on your office desktop or laptop via Software Center (Windows) or Self Service (Mac) by April 13th
  • Alertus will be installed for classroom computers after the Spring 2018 semester has come to a close - the week of May 7th
