You will also receive notifications of unscheduled campus closures due to weather or other issues. Your phone will not use data to connect to the CMTN Alertus Server and the app is free. Visit the student self-service area of our site for instructions on how to download the Alertus app.

They are trained to facilitate events and activities to help you meet new people in residence and to build a strong community. They can be great friends and fantastic resources.
