Alertus Desktop Application Upgrade

Effective Date: April 16, 2021

On Friday, Academic and Institutional Technology will be doing a behind-the-scenes upgrade to the Alertus Desktop application.  This is the system that sends emergency alerts such as weather alerts or active shooter drills. 

If you are off campus you will need to make sure you are connected to campus through the VPN.

Key Benefits and Features

  • Keeping our emergency alert system up-to-date.
  • Fixing some issues we have experienced lately.

Impact on College Community

You should not notice any change.  Do make sure you connect via VPN on Friday, though, if you are working from off-campus.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
