Campus Safety
Campus Alert System


Safety and security is important at Northern; that's why we have a Campus Alert System  for all students, faculty, and staff. During an emergency, critical emergency-related alerts are sent directly to users' cell, home, and/or office phone or email.

Visit NSU Campus Alert to register to receive critical information updates.

To Report a Safety Incident
Use the Incident Reporting Form to report concerns about a student’s safety or behavior that may pose a threat to another student. In this context, an "incident" is an event that does NOT warrant immediate intervention.
In an emergency or crisis situation that requires immediate intervention, call 9-911 from a campus phone or 911 from all other phones.
