Welcome to the Student Life portal for emergency communications. In these pages, you will find a wide range of information--including planning tips, area resources, and campus contacts--that will help your student prepare for emergencies. We ask all students and their families to familiarize themselves with these resources so they know whom to call upon when they need assistance; in an emergency, or in their every day life at Kettering.

Kettering Alert, the University's emergency notification system, makes it possible for us to send critical news and information to the Kettering community during campus emergencies, including weather-related closures. Students may opt-in to receive cell phone text and voicemail messages, alerting them to campus emergencies and recommending a course of action to promote safety. Please encourage your student to participate in this emergency notification system.

Student Life Staff

The Student Life staff members join many others at Kettering who are committed to creating a productive, enjoyable, and safe collegiate experience for all our students. Contact us if you have any questions about our resources, or how your student may take advantage of them. (For a comprehensive list of Student Life staff, programs, and resources, refer to our website.)
