SAFETY

Our officers are part of the campus community. Whether you’re at a residence hall, in an academic building or out and about on campus, they’re here for you. UNC is committed to providing the safest possible living, learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff.

Emergency Response Plan

We regularly test, update and improve our comprehensive emergency response plan and encourage the campus community to become familiar with it.

Communication with the Campus Community

One of the key elements of UNC’s emergency response plan is a multi-layered communication system that allows university officials to efficiently communicate accurate information in a timely fashion. A new Emergency Alert System is capable of simultaneously sending text and voice messages to students, faculty and staff via personal cell phones, university e-mail accounts and landline telephones, and “emergency call trees” facilitate dissemination of alerts via word-of-mouth in classroom buildings and residence halls.
