How Callmy works

Once you have the app set up on your phone, the University can send you relevant security updates and important information.

You need to have your location services enabled on your phone in order for us to send you messages specific to your location.

The app won’t ask you for any personal details other than your phone number. It does not store any user information so you remain anonymous.

You can choose to uninstall the Callmy app at any time.

Emergency messages

If the University needs to contact you in an emergency, we will send you a text, voice or picture message to your phone.

Most messages need no action. Some may ask you to respond or to confirm that you have received the message.

The security team will use Callmy to send important messages if there is an emergency situation such as:

  • Closure of campus due to bad weather
  • A road traffic accident
  • Fire
  • Flooding
