Emergency Notification – Adelphi Alert

The University Mass Notification System enables the University to immediately broadcast urgent messages and deliver instructions to the campus community when necessary.

Alert Beacons

NEW feature to provide enhanced notification and public warning

The Department of Public Safety and Transportation along with our partners in Information Technology have incorporated a new feature to the existing “Adelphi Alert” platform. The integration of “Alert beacons” to the existing Adelphi Alert (RAVE) platform has increased the university’s capability to reach a wider audience while simultaneously reducing the time it takes to send timely and actionable information in the event of an incident affecting the campus community.

The alert beacons are strategically located in the common areas of public use spaces throughout campus and are easily identifiable in that when activated by Public Safety Officers manning the Public Safety Command Center, the beacons emit an alert tone and signal through the use of a strobe light, red flashers, and an alert siren. A predetermined message is simultaneously displayed on the screen which provides information as to the nature of the emergency and what actions to take.

In addition to the alert beacon activation, an SMS message will be immediately and concurrently sent to your wireless devices (if registered with the University’s Mass Notification System) further increasing the university’s reach when it comes to emergency notification. Follow-up information and incident updates will be disseminated through the use of the “Adelphi Alert” (RAVE) system as necessary.

Beacons are currently located in the following spaces:

  • Center for Recreation and Sports
  • Performing Arts Center
  • Alice Brown Early Learning Center
  • Nexus Building
  • Manhattan Center


Schedule an Active Shooter/Hostile Intruder, Emergency Preparedness or Fire Safety awareness training session for your department or group.

Rave Alert

Please follow the instructions below to get to your RAVE Profile Dashboard, where you can input, update, change and/or test your information.

  • Go to the University Mass Notification System accessible with your eCampus login.
  • The first time you access the Rave Alert service you must accept the service provider’s terms and conditions.
  • Your mobile device and email can also be tested by hitting the yellow “Test” button at any time.

Each primary mobile device must also be confirmed. You can do this by selecting the “Edit Phone” button to the right of the device.

  • You then must confirm your mobile carrier and hit continue. The system will then send a four digit confirmation code to your device that must be entered on the next screen. Then hit continue and your  device is confirmed.

Please note that although the system settings may include your email address, at this time the University is using text and voice message to broadcast urgent messages.
