Emergency Procedures

Housing and Residence Life is committed to protecting the safety and welfare of its residents. This section of the website was designed to help students better evaluate, prepare, respond and recover from emergency situations. When necessary HRL will notify residents via email and social media (i.e., when severe weather may impact campus).

This information is intended for staff and residents.  The quick reference provides essential information in regards to emergency situations that could arise in housing.  For more detailed emergency information, please visit the University's Emergency Information website.
