Campus Safety Team
In an effort to make the campus safer and more secure, UW Oshkosh has initiated a campuswide emergency response team. Consisting of trained campus volunteers, the UW Oshkosh Safety Team supplements the University Police’s efforts by providing low-risk assistance during an emergency. Learn more about the Campus Safety Team.
Campus Emergency Plan
UW Oshkosh notifies students of campus emergencies online via the University homepage, UW Oshkosh Today and social media as well as a campus-wide email notification and TitanAlert text message. An Emergency Procedures Guide is distributed throughout campus to help students, faculty and staff prepare for and respond to an emergency on campus.
Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of inclement weather, students will be notified of class delays or cancellations via the University homepage, UW Oshkosh Today and a campus-wide email notification.
TitanAlert, a text-messaging alert system, is used to communicate important campus information right to a mobile phone. Students, faculty and staff can sign up to receive information about severe weather warnings or campus emergencies that have a direct impact on UW Oshkosh classes and operations — events such as thunderstorm and tornado warnings, blizzards and other threats to the schedules, safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and guests. Learn more about TitanAlert at UW Oshkosh.
UW Oshkosh Mobile App
Access emergency as well as non-emergency contact information, report emergencies and sign up for TitanAlert through the University’s mobile app for Apple and Android devices. Learn more about the UWO mobile app and its new features.

Campus Violence Prevention Program (CVPP)
