In the Event of an Emergency

The campus community will be notified through a variety of mechanisms including email, voicemail, SMS, digital signage, USU’s social media platforms and on the University homepage at usu.edu.

This webpage will broadcast all alerts and the University’s response. In an ongoing emergency situation, this page will include new alerts and information at the top. Emergency alerts will also be sent out through USU’s CODE BLUE alert system. To ensure you receive all notifications, please update your contact information in the CODE BLUE system.
