Emergency Alerts

In the event of a campus emergency or severe weather, Barry University uses a system of alerts that aim to ensure the health and safety of its students, faculty, and staff.

Be prepared! You can be notified of the emergency and receive further instructions in the following ways:

  • Text Message
  • Phone Recording
  • Email
  • On-Campus Alerts

To receive text, voice, and email alerts, be sure to log in to WebAdvisor and update your emergency contact information. Visit webadvisor.barry.edu and click on “Emergency Contact Information” under the Communication heading.

The University also operates a hotline, with recorded messages on campus closures, emergency procedures, or other urgent information, at 305-899-4000.

The on-campus alert system, Barry Alerts, is a mass notification system that includes an outdoor siren, scrolling LEDdisplays throughout campus, and emergency notices on the TVs in Landon Student Union. Please familiarize yourself with the location of the LED displays in Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library, Andreas Building, Garner Building, Adrian Hall, Wiegand Center, Powers Hall, Fine Arts Quadrangle, and Kolasa Hall.
