Campus Safety and Security

The Department of Campus Safety has several ways to ensure that the campus community remains a safe and secure learning environment, including CCTV surveillance cameras, an access-controlled facility, advanced fire control system, and the RAVE Emergency Notification System. The Campus Safety team is committed to providing safety and security services in a professional and consistent manner. RVU strives to provide these services with integrity, professionalism, and timeliness. Campus Safety personnel are present on campus from 6 a.m. to midnight, Monday – Friday and from 8 a.m. to midnight on Saturday & Sunday. They provide proactive patrols, safety escorts, investigations, crime prevention, and many other services. Students, staff, or faculty who witness a crime, accident, emergency, suspicious person, or any other emergency should promptly call the Department of Campus Safety at (406) 901-2722 or contact emergency services by dialing 911. The Department of Campus Safety should be informed of all 911 calls so assistance can be provided to local law enforcement and/or other emergency personnel.

Students, staff, and faculty will receive emergency notifications, including campus closures and weather delays via SMS text messages and email notifications. In the event a Timely Warning Notice is issued, the campus community will be notified as soon as possible through our Emergency Notification Systems in the form of SMS text messages, emails, and/or bull horn/public address system. Students, staff, and faculty will receive a text message notification of RVU campus closures or emergencies.
