Texas Tech University

To all Texas Tech University faculty, staff and students:

An active shooter situation on the UT Austin campus this morning has caused the cancellation of today’s scheduled test of the TechAlert! system.

Although the situation in Austin is still evolving, this morning’s TechAlert! test will be rescheduled at a later date.

However, this is a reminder for the Texas Tech community that we must all be vigilant about campus safety. It is vital that you keep your information updated so that we can reach you as quickly as possible during an emergency. Verify and update your information at

Let us all keep our colleagues and fellow Texans in our thoughts.

Thank You,

President Guy Bailey
