In an emergency situation, it’s critical that you stay informed. UW-Whitewater is now offering the option of text alerts for students. This is strictly for emergency situations, such as severe weather and active threats, or other dangerous situations.
To receive these texts, please make sure your current mobile phone number is listed in WINS. You’ll find the directions on how to do so below. Please don’t hesitate to contact University Police with any questions at 262-472-4660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directions: Log in to WINS: http://www.uww.edu/wins Select Student Center. Under the Personal Information section select Phone Numbers from the drop down menu. Select 'Go'. To Add a Phone Number, select 'Add a Phone Number'. Use the Dropdown to select the 'Phone Type'. Be sure to add a 'Mobile' number that can receive texts for emergency notifications. Enter your phone number. Select 'Save'. Select 'OK'.
Sincerely, Matt Kiederlen, UW-Whitewater Chief of Police
