Mobile applications

NLC has several different applications that can be downloaded from your favourite app store.


Alertus is our alert and emergency notification system. It uses audible and visual alerts via push notifications to warn the college community in the event of a lockdown situation. The Alertus Activator App allows authorized dispatchers to quickly send emergency notification alerts to faculty, staff, students, or personnel via tablets or smartphones.

Once installed, the code to activate this app is: 6521


This app provides 24/7 support for students as part of the keep.meSafe program at NLC. Students can access the program anytime, anywhere, 24/7, to connect with a Student Support Advisor who speaks your language, understands your culture, and can work with you to succeed while studying abroad or at home.
