Rensselaer's RPI Alert emergency notification system is designed to provide rapid notification and instructions to students, faculty, staff, and others in the event of an in-progress crisis that is taking place either on campus or within the immediate area.
Access the RPI Alert | Campus Portal to update your contact information using your RCS username and password. Individuals with RCS usernames and passwords may add contact information for parents, or other family members, using the Second Contact Call and Second Contact Text fields.
Individuals who do not have an RCS username and password — or a family member with access to the system — but wish to receive RPI Alert messages are requested to please email Rensselaer's Department of Public Safety.
How to add your mobile phone
