Metropolitan State University’s Safety and Security Office provides a safe, secure environment for all members of the community which enables students, faculty, staff, community members, and guests to pursue their educational or occupational goals.
Our security services are contracted from professional security agencies. All contracted officers are uniformed and trained on a variety of security and safety procedures. They are authorized to take appropriate action to assure the safety and security of all students, faculty, staff, community members, and guests. Security services are augmented by local police, fire, and ambulance response units when necessary.
Students, faculty and staff are alerted to any disruptions to campus operations through university email and Star Alert, an automated phone call and text messaging system. Timely warnings are posted to bulletin boards around campus and are available upon request.
Students and employees are automatically registered to receive Star Alert notifications. You can manage your contact information and notification preferences at any time.
