Annual Campus Security Reports

The UW-Washington County Annual Security Reports include statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

The reports also include institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.

Students will be notified each year, via e-mail, when the updated report is published. Copies of the report can be obtained from the Solution Center.

E alerts will automatically notify you if classes are canceled due to inclement weather or in the case of an emergency on campus. eAlert mail messages are automatically sent to all campus email addresses. You can also receive eAlerts by text on your cell phone - just update your phone information in PRISM. Learn more about eAlerts.

Ebola Information

Although the Ebola virus poses no immediate threat to the general United States population, it is important to be aware of any changes in your health if you have recently traveled to one of the countries where the Ebola outbreak is occurring (currently Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the Republic of the Congo) and to seek immediate medical care.
