In the event of an emergency, call 630.752.5911 or 911 immediately.

Communication in the Event of an Emergency (Timely Warnings)

When a situation occurs that the campus community needs to be notified, such as dangerous weather, violence on campus, and any situation that is critical for safety you will be notified by Public Safety in one or more ways.

  • Students and employees should keep their contact information up to date in our system.
  • Send Word Now, the campus notification system, will call to notify you of the situation. This can be by voice and/or text message.
  • Marquee boards and speakers, including live or pre-recorded announcements
  • Campus wide email

We will send out a message that details what the situation is and specific directions on how to respond. It is important to take all calls seriously and to pay close attention to any instructions given.
