EWU has been named one of the safest college campuses in the country for 2018.*

To see our security policies and procedures in the event of a campus emergency, go to the Campus Safety page.

Students and families can also sign up for EWU Alerts. Get notified by text message in the event of an emergency or safety situation on campus.
