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.

All alerts are sent through USU's campus alert system, and all members of the campus community should keep their notification settings in updated.

Code Blue Alerts

USU sends a Code Blue alert, also called 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.

Crime Alerts

USU sends crime alerts, also called timely warnings, when there is a potentially dangerous criminal situation on campus that poses a serious or ongoing threat. The goal is to prevent future crime by providing steps individuals can take to protect themselves and others.

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.
