The free Rave Guardian app can help turn any smartphone into a personal safety device, and is an integral part of Ithaca College’s program to promote the well-being of the campus community. In conjunction with the Emergency Notification System, it provides both mass notification services (IC Alerts) and quick access to important safety and wellness contacts, information and resources. Learn how to install with our Guardian login guide.
The Rave Guardian app also lets you:
- Call Ithaca College Public Safety or your local 911 emergency services with just two clicks.
- Call a variety of Ithaca College and external Support/Crisis lines and services, ranging from the National Suicide Prevention and Poison Control hotlines to the IC Health Center and the Information Technology Service Desk.
- Access the websites of important campus Emergency Resources, including Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the LGBTQ Center, the Title IX office, and Facilities Customer Service Center.
- Set a Guardian Timer, through which you can invite a friend or family member to serve as your “guardian” and virtually escort you to and/or from an on-campus or off-campus location.
It is important to note that only the Guardian app features listed here and elsewhere on Ithaca College’s Emergency Notification System and Rave Guardian pages are “turned on” and available for use by members of the IC community.
