The Office of Campus Security supports the mission of the University by maintaining a reasonably safe and secure environment conducive to effective learning, teaching, studying, and working. A professional core of Security Officers, an integral part of the campus community, provides protection of persons and property through crime and emergency prevention activities, incident response, ID services, parking and traffic control, facilities access, and dispatch communications. The office is also responsible for maintaining and reporting crime statistics for the University as mandated by the Campus Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. The office is committed to the accomplishment of the following goals:

  • Balance security concerns with the freedom and privacy required in a higher education institution
  • Foster an effective working relationship between campus safety personnel and all other elements of the University community including students, faculty, staff, and visitors
  • Increase crime and emergency prevention awareness
  • Ensure compliance with appropriate institutional policies and regulations regarding campus security

In the event of an emergency, please contact Campus Security at (256)777-1776 or (256)233-8222. If you have an EMERGENCY requiring police, fire or ambulance, call 911 without delay.

All campus buildings and elevators have either a red security phone or call box. To contact security pick up the receiver on the phone or press the button on the call box to connect with Campus Security.
