What is Spartan Alert?

Posted on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 by University Police under Police - General Information.

SpartanAlert is a website created by UNCG to post emergency alerts, safety messages, and general information for services provided through the University. For instance, during inclement weather several departments will post closing and opening times and any other important information that you may need to know to prepare for the upcoming situation.

Notice of Availability of the UNCG Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to Current and Prospective Students and Employees

At UNC Greensboro, we place the highest priority on the safety and security of our students and our campus community. We are committed to creating an environment of trust and transparency while providing effective, compassionate, professional services and support to our students, faculty and staff whenever they are in need.

In this context, we are sharing the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (the Report) as required by the federal law known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).

The Report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as: crime prevention, fire safety, university police law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security and safety on the main campus, including the Union Campus building, and the Gateway University Research Park – South Campus. The Report also contains information about crime statistics for the previous calendar year and the two calendar years prior concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by UNCG; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.

Sharing this report is essential to the safety of our campus because being informed can help make our students and our community better prepared. We believe this information can help students feel confident in the systems and people that are here to help them when they report a problem.

Please note that for some of the crime statistics, one alleged incident may result in multiple reports; reported incidents do not necessarily indicate events that resulted in any criminal charges or prosecution; and some reports are based on alleged incidents that were reported in 2021 but occurred in previous years.

The Report is available on the UNCG Clery Compliance website at Paper copies of the Report are available at the UNCG Police Department located at 1200 W. Gate City Blvd., Greensboro, NC, 27403. If you have questions about the Report or would like to request a copy be mailed to you, contact the Clery Compliance Officer by calling 336-334-5963 or emailing

Keeping you and our campus safe

No one likes to imagine a disturbance to the peace and safety of our university. While we hope that a crisis or emergency will never occur at UNCG, the university has made emergency preparedness a priority. It has in place an Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) and a Chancellor’s Crisis Policy Group which are ready to be activated if an urgent situation arises.

UNCG’s response system helps ensure campus-wide awareness of how to respond to crises. It is based on a strategically-developed and continually updated Crisis Communication Plan. By using multiple communication systems, the university will provide rapid notification to more than 18,000 students and 2,500 faculty and staff.

The University Emergency Notification System is a communication tool used to notify the campus community about any situation or condition that could threaten the safety of individuals on campus. There are three types of messages delivered by the system:

  • Alerts – An incident or condition that requires immediate attention.
  • Safety Messages  A message sent to inform the UNCG community of general safety information about crimes that have already occurred but represent an ongoing threat to campus.
  • Test Messages – The system integrity is being tested.

The Emergency Notification System is designed to have overlapping methods of delivery that includes: Text messages, Twitter, Facebook, emails, network pop-ups, intercoms and outdoor public address system. Our goal is to keep you informed and safe.
