RAVE Emergency Alert System

Register for University of Detroit Mercy emergency communications and be among the first to receive alerts on campus-wide class cancellations or other emergency notices via text message and email through the Rave Mobile Safety System.

All faculty, staff and students are enrolled in the free program but must register to confirm contact information and choose notification preferences (cell phones, landline phones, text pagers or emails). If you have previously registered for the alert system, there is no need to register again; however, you may need to update your contact information if it has changed since you originally registered.

To log in, go to getrave.com/login/udmercy. Use your Titan Pass username and password and then click the login button. Follow the screen prompts to modify contact information and select notification devices. If you experience problems logging in, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 313-993-1500 or email helpdesk@manufacturedconsensus.net.

Parents, contractors and other members of the University of Detroit Mercy community may now opt-in for University emergency alerts provided by Rave using their cell phone. Text UDMERCY to 67283 to opt-in. Message and data rates may apply. Text messages are sent on an as-needed basis. This service is provided per Rave’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Text STOP to 67283 to cancel or HELP for support.

All current students and employees are automatically enrolled in the University’s Rave alert system and need not perform this step. Students are welcome to share this information with their parents and others.

Information on school closures can also be found on the University's homepage as well as on news media (Channels 2, 4, 7, 50, 62) and through radio broadcasts on WWJ-950 AM and WJR-760 AM.

Notice about RAVE usage

The RAVE system is used for immediate notification when there is an imminent threat with serious danger involved, as determined by Public Safety and the Emergency Response Team. As such, use of RAVE must be carefully considered and not taken lightly. Overusing the system would desensitize users and the effectiveness of alerts would be diminished.
