Alerts & statistics
Emergency & crime notifications
In the event of a serious life-threatening emergency, WashU students, faculty and staff will receive an emergency message, or WashUAlert, providing basic information about the type of emergency, safety instructions and how/where to get additional information. In less urgent situations, the university may issue additional message types which can be posted or emailed depending on the nature and scope of the incident. To learn more, view the Emergency and Crime Notification Types. Additional information about the emergency notification system can be found on the Emergency Management website.
