Campus Alerts

USU issues campus alerts when there is a significant emergency, an ongoing threat of certain crimes on campus, or a safety concern from weather or off-campus incidents. USU Public Safety follows a decision matrix to determine which alert is sent to the university community. Alerts are sent through USU's Code Blue Alert System, and all members of the campus community should keep their notification settings in Code Blue updated.

Emergency Notifications

USU sends an emergency notification when a significant emergency or dangerous situation poses an immediate threat to the health and safety of students or employees on campus. A significant emergency could include an impending and dangerous weather event, an active shooter or terrorist attack, or a gas leak.

Timely Warning Notices

USU sends timely warnings to warn the campus community of a potentially dangerous criminal situation on campus in a timely manner so people can take steps to protect themselves. 

Community Safety Alerts

USU sends a safety alert when there is a safety concern that could affect the campus community. For example, the closure of the university due to significant snow or wind.
