UU Tip Line

In an effort to create a safer campus, the Division of Student Affairs has created the Urbana University Tip Line. 

Students, faculty, and staff can call 937-772-9338  to report any suspicious behaviors, activities, or other helpful information. Callers can remain anonymous when leaving their message. Once we receive a message, a member of the Student Affairs staff will determine what further or appropriate action needs to be taken. 


Tips can also be e-mailed to tips@urbana.edu 


If you know things are going on around campus, please give this number a call. 


With your help we can make a safer UU!


Emergency Alert Notificiation System

In an effort to communicate emergency situations on campus and campus closings, Urbana University utilizes a mass communication program, One Call Now,  with voice, text, and email messages. In order for any plan of this type to be successful in an emergency, the University will need accurate and complete information from community members.  Enroll today!


Text Messaging:

Members must opt-in to receive text messages. To do so, text ALERT to 22300. Message and data rates may apply.
