Your safety is important to us.
At WKU, the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is extremely important to us. We have created this website as a place where students, faculty, staff and the community can visit to find resources related to campus safety, security, emergency preparedness and more.
The last thing we ever hope for is an emergency, but in the event of a security or weather-related event, WKU is your first resource for up-to-date information.
