At Queens University of Charlotte, we are proud of our caring community and the trust we place in one another. At the same time, we understand that Queens is not immune to emergencies or other disruptive situations.
In the event of an emergency (such as severe weather or other natural disaster that results in a delay or closure of the university; a major public health event such as a pandemic outbreak; or a significant incident of violence), the university's crisis management team will communicate with members of the campus community in a variety of ways depending on the nature of the incident.
QAlert is the emergency notification system that we use to notify the campus community of an emergency, inclement weather or class cancellations. It sends messages about the status of a given situation - as well as other details that the campus needs to know - via text, e-mail and phone. Students, faculty and staff are required to sign up for QAlert.
Severe Weather Events
The university will provide delay and closure information to local television and radio stations, as well as via Queens.edu, QAlert, broadcast email and broadcast voicemail (for faculty and staff). Members of the campus community may also call Queens' Information Hotline at 704-337-2567 to listen to weather-related updates.
Violent Incidents and Public Health Events
The university will use QAlert to alert students, faculty and staff about major emergencies on campus. We will also use communication tools such as broadcast email, broadcast voicemail, and the homepage of the Queens.edu website.
Below is a list of important health and safety contacts. We recommend students, faculty and staff save these numbers in their cell phones in case of a campus-related emergency. In addition, you can use these links to find additional information about our Campus Police and Student Health and Wellness Center.
