The University of Oklahoma will conduct a university-wide test of its emergency communication system the morning of Thursday, Sept. 9.

The alert system, also known as RAVE, allows the university to keep students, faculty and staff informed of critical and/or important information regarding OU’s campuses in the event of a weather or safety emergency. The RAVE system is capable of using numerous alert methods, such as text messages, email and/or phone calls.

Emergency contact information currently on record for all OU students, faculty and staff has been pre-loaded into RAVE.

To update or to verify your emergency contact information, please use these campus-specific links:

  • Norman Faculty/Staff/Students -
  • HSC Faculty/Staff/Students -
  • Tulsa - Use the appropriate link above for your campus program

Members of the community may opt-in to receive emergency alerts for the Norman campus by texting OUALERTS to 67283 or the OUHSC campus by texting HSCAFFILIATE to 226787.
