Updating Your Emergency Contact Information

Should an emergency or crisis situation arise, a University official may need to contact you or someone else on your behalf.  Students are encouraged to take a few moments each semester to confirm or update their local address and telephone number, as well as their emergency contacts and associate information.  It is suggested that students provide at least two contacts, perhaps a family member or significant other, and someone who resides locally in the University or Chapel Hill community.  It is recommended that you review and update your contact information at least once each semester.
