Students, faculty, staff, and university affiliates, should carry your UT ID card at all times: Your ID is your key to enter most campus buildings during restricted access hours.
Emergencies may range from inclement weather to building evacuations to campus closures. The university has a variety of tools to communicate with the public in the event of these and other possible emergencies. Depending on the type of emergency, we may use some or all of the tools listed to communicate with faculty, staff and students.
