SMS and other information channels

​​​​​An informed campus is a safer campus and AUB operates several channels to ensure that its community is kept up to date when internal and external events present risks to campus safety or quality of life. 

AUB issues notices and informational alerts to students via its hom​epage and its Facebook and Twitter accounts. We also communicate with our campus community via mass email, group email, digital message boards across campus, and SMS.​
