Tualerts are used to communicate information about somehting occurring that requires immediate action on the part of the campus community, and are usually sent because of an imminent public safety danger. TUalerts also inform the Temple Uniersity network of when there is an unexpected need to evacuate because of a utility failure or if campus will be closed for inclement weather.
All members of the Temple University community with a "temple.edu" domain receive TUalerts via e-mail, and individuals can sign up to receive text messages via their mobile device. TUalerts are also published on the university's Twitter feed, @TempleUniv.
