UC Davis WarnMe and Aggie Alert messages provide timely information and instructions to faculty, staff, students and others when their well-being may be directly affected by emergencies or other urgent situations. WarnMe messages and Aggie Alerts are distributed by email and text message and also posted to UC Davis’ Facebook and Twitter accounts. Tests are scheduled three times during each academic year.
- WarnMe tests will be announced here.
- Please review your contact information and update as needed.
- Employee and student contact information — Your UC Davis email addresses are included in the WarnMe system automatically; you can add mobile numbers and other email addresses.
- Parents, vendors, contractors and others — You can sign up for text notifications only for the Davis campus and three other university locations (Bodega Marine Laboratory, Tahoe Environmental Research Center, and Continuing and Professional Education). See sign-up information here.
- Mobile app (limited to people with UC Davis email addresses) — The app includes a number of safety features and is an important option for UC Davis affiliates with international phone numbers, as WarnMe does not send text messages to international numbers. Learn more about the Everbridge Mobile App and how to download it.

Blood and marrow drives
- Blood drives will be posted here when scheduled.
- June 23 results — 40 units of blood collected.
- Read Chancellor Gary S. May’s statement welcoming blood drives on campus, while also asserting: UC Davis strongly supports the development of evidence-based policies that would allow blood donations from all who are safely able to give, and stands strongly against all forms of discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.
The Big Shift is the campuswide heating system conversion project, whereby steam lines are being replaced with hot water lines. Heat exchangers in buildings will draw heat off the hot water, to heat the buildings, just like we do now with steam. The hot water system will use electricity (a renewable resource) to heat the water, instead of natural gas, a fossil fuel, that is used in the steam system. The hot water system will use less energy, because the water need not be heated to boiling (for steam), and will be safer to maintain. Current road and path closures are listed here, along with other project links:
- Hutchison Drive — Closure extended: Section of road between A Street and California Avenue, which already has limited access, is closed to all through traffic through Oct. 31. Detour via Shields Avenue. See map.

- Prohibition on political campaign intervention — The University of California strongly supports public and civic engagement by members of the university community, in both their professional and personal capacities. At the same time, we must adhere to the restrictions outlined in this advisory from the Office of General Counsel.
