Brandeis Emergency Notification System
The Brandeis Emergency Notification System (BENS) allows the university to quickly provide critical information to community members wherever they are located. Alerts can be sent via email, text message, voice call and a general alert using a campus-wide siren/speaker system.
BENS alerts not only inform the Brandeis community of an emergency situation affecting campus, but also inform the community about severe weather delays and closures.
Registering for BENS is easy and only takes a few moments.
Types of Messages:
Emails: Emails are sent via the BENS system to all active Brandeis email accounts.
Voice Calls: BENS Alerts can be received by voice to mobile and landline numbers. Members of the community must opt in to this by providing their contact information in Workday.
Text/SMS Messages: BENS Alerts can be received via text/SMS to mobile numbers. Members of the community must opt in to this by providing their contact information in Workday.
