UH Emergency Check-in Center

Welcome to the University of Houston's Emergency Check-in Center

This site ensures the university can reach you during an emergency.  Because this Check-in Center enables communication via a number of tools including text messaging, the web and email, UH will be better able to stay in touch and to understand the impact of the emergency on all of our constituents. Your feedback will provide UH leadership with essential information for making decisions.

In an emergency, UH leadership can be reached by texting the University of Houston emergency check-in site at short code address 847911. For help with texting, please visit the 'check-in steps' documentation.

Please help us be able to reach you during emergencies by keeping your information current in myUH.  Instructions on how to do that are available at the UH Emergency Operations Center web site.
