UNL Alert notifications are available via the ‘Alertus’ app to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln community.

Alertus Icon


The Alertus app extends UNL Alerts to desktops, giving University Police the capability to provide safety instructions quickly and directly to faculty, staff and students.

When a UNL Alert is active, the Alertus app will pop up a full screen notification on computers when they are  connected to the university network. The pop up notification can be dismissed by clicking the green "Dismiss" button on the bottom of the notification.
