Designated Safety Areas

  1. The university has designated areas for the sheltering of the campus community. Placards have been placed at most main entrances to academic buildings alerting each occupant of the designated shelter location. Placards are also placed at the designated shelter location. These placards are the same throughout the university.
  2. In the event the locations listed below do not provide enough space, direct people to a lower level room with interior walls and without windows.
