CNU is operating under normal conditions.

To ensure effective and efficient emergency notifications, the University will perform maintenance and updates to the system during the coming weeks.

If you wish to continue receiving emergency notifications via CNU Alert, you must re-register here: CNU Emergency Alert Subscription Confirmation by May 22, 2017.

If you do not re-register, you will no longer receive emergency notifications after May 22.

Emergency notification is critical for safety and response to an on-campus incident. Updating the system will ensure all who need information have the ability to receive it in a timely manner. We encourage anyone with an interest in the CNU community to re-register. Updated contact information will go “live” in the emergency notifications system on May 22, and all old data will be removed.

Christopher Newport University's Emergency Notifications System:

There are two primary electronic communication methods.

In the event of a real-time emergency (tornado, shooter, etc...) where students, faculty and staff need to take immediate action, a text message will be sent via this alert system. Other system components such as, email, calls to landline and cell phones, social media, and internal computer overrides may also be used. This type of communication will go to all individuals registered in the cnualert system.

In all other cases where there is not an emergency or immediate threat, information will be sent by email to Christopher Newport University students, faculty and staff via the cnu.edu email system. This notification is intended only for members of the Christopher Newport University community who attend classes or work on campus so that they may make plans regarding their daily activities.
