How to Shelter in Place

Shelter-in-place means to seek immediate shelter and remain there during an emergency rather than evacuate the area. Shelter-in-place will only be used when an evacuation is not safe. Certain events, such as hazardous materials contamination or severe weather, may necessitate the initiation of the university’s shelter-in-place protocol. Notification to shelter-in-place may be made using all means of communication available.
