The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Visitors and Local Community

UMass is proud to host thousands of visitors each year, whether they are visiting guests, parents, conference attendees or local or corporate travelers.  We are committed to providing a safe environment for our visitors while they are here with us on campus and we have comprehensive programs in place to ensure that your physical and emotional needs will be met in the case of an emergency.

Notification and Preparing for Your Visit Visiting
The best way to receive notification of an emergency on campus is to follow our Twitter and Facebook feeds to up–to-date status information. 

In the case of some incidents, we may activate the use of our Outdoor Warning System  when your immediate attention is required.

While planning your visit, please use the Emergency Management website to familiarize yourself with Campus Programs and Emergency Procedures.
