We are open 24/7, every day of the year. There is always someone to take your call or respond to an emergency. We handle a large volume of calls and customers, so please be patient if there is a wait.
Campus Safety sends out emergency messages via PLU Alert! (text, cellphone, email). For more information about alert levels and associated procedures please visit our Emergency Notification and Lock down Information page.
Courtesy Rides/Escorts: One of our Safety Officers will provide a courtesy ride or walking escorts on and immediately adjacent to campus 24 hours a day, all year round. Since the Safety Officers have a number of other tasks that they will be involved with, please call ahead to get an estimated time of arrival (ETA) and place your request accordingly.
