Emergency Alert Information

LUPD uses an emergency alert system to notify the LU community of emergency situations, inclement weather closures, and other important public safety information. Alerts are sent to the contact information saved in your Self-Service Banner account.

It is imperative that every student, faculty, and staff member receives these emergency notifications. So, it's very important that you keep this information up-to-date.

Learn how to update your contact information.

For emergencies, or to report suspicious persons, vehicles or activities, call 911 or (409) 880-7777.
