Rave Guardian

Concordia's emergency alert app

Rave Guardian APP

The Rave Guardian app provides push notifications for emergency alerts to your cell phone or mobile device. To receive an alert, you must be on a wifi network or a data plan, and be either a student, faculty or staff member. The app will be used to advise the Concordia community about significant emergencies on campus.

The Rave Guardian app can be downloaded for free, from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

  1. Once downloaded, enter your cellphone number. You will receive your verification code by text.
  2. Enter your Concordia email address. You will receive your verification code by email.
  3. You will then be granted access to the branded Concordia Rave Guardian app.

Please use your Concordia email address when prompted to access the Concordia Rave Guardian site. If you do not have a Concordia email address, use the address you provided to Concordia in your Student Centre or HR profile.

When granted access to the Concordia site, the Concordia logo will appear and the main navigation bar will display in burgundy. If you have not reached the Concordia site in the app, you will not be able to receive the alerts.

For more information on the Guardian app, e-mail us at or visit Rave's website.

See something, text something

The app provides a confidential way to report an emergency or to submit a tip to Campus Security—with a photo, if necessary—through a text message.


Set up a safety timer 

If you’re alone, feel unsafe or make a trip to an unfamiliar place, user the virtual walk-safe feature to set a time and location for expected arrival. You can choose anyone with a cell phone in your contact list as your "Guardian". They will be notified if you do not turn off your safety timer. The timer can be used anywhere you have cell phone service.  Users can deactivate the timer when they’re safe, but guardians are notified if the timer expires.
