How do I update my cell phone in B-Alert?

B-Alert is the campus emergency notification system. In the event of an emergency, B-Alert will notify faculty, staff, and students via text message, email, and phone call. A similar message will be broadcast over the campus-wide public address system and will likely be heard by neighbors in residential areas around campus, including both sides of Route 15.

NOTE: You must use your contact information, not information for your emergency contacts such as family or friends.

To setup your contact information in B-Alert:

Go to or follow the instructions below.

  1. Login to myBucknell. Click on the blue circle with the white head - Profile and Accounts - in the top left corner.  If you do not see the blue circles, you may need to click the three lines in the left corner to open the menu.

  2. Scroll down to and click on Emergency Cell Phone - B-Alert.

  3. Click + ADD NEW to add a new phone number or x Remove to remove an old one.
  4. Type your cell phone number and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  5. Click CONFIRM CHANGES when finished.

Note: If you are a student, please enter your Parent Guardian Contact, Emergency Contact, and Missing Person Contact as well as your cell phone number.

If you are an employee (faculty or staff), you will only need to enter your cell phone number.
