About New York Tech Alerts

New York Tech Alerts is a mass notification system for emergency communications and student outreach. It's an efficient, timely way for New York Tech to contact students, faculty, and staff via text message (SMS) or voice message in the event of emergencies or campus delays/closures. Students may also receive administrative reminders and notices.

New York Tech Alerts uses 23177 as the incoming text messaging number. Please save this number and program it as New York Tech Alerts so you can quickly recognize it as the official source of New York Tech messages.

Because the security of our New York Tech community is of utmost importance, New York Tech Alerts is an opt-out system. All current full- and part-time students, faculty, and staff members are automatically part of the system and do not have to sign up to receive New York Tech Alerts. If you are not part of the school's contact database and you try to subscribe, you will not be able to do so.
