Shelter in Place

To Report an Emergency

Dial 3911 from any Liberty University phone or (434) 592-3911 from any cell or off-campus phone. Pre-programming your phone with this number (including area code) will save time during an emergency.

During an Emergency

In the event of an emergency, you will be notified by:

  • The outdoor sirens of the Liberty University Emergency Warning System
  • Announcement on myLU
  • Mass email to all Liberty University email addresses
  • Announcement on The Journey radio 88.3 FM

A second notice will be distributed when safety has been restored.

Have you witnessed or been the victim of a crime?

If so, then it is important to know what rights and what resources are available to you. The LUPD Victim/Witness Information Form was created to do just that. Take the time to read and understand the information on this form. You are not alone!

Bomb Threats

In the event that you receive a telephone bomb threat:

  • Remain calm
  • Keep the caller on the phone for as long as possible
  • Gather any information that the caller is willing and able to give you
  • Listen for any sounds that may give clues to the caller’s whereabouts and/or the identity of the caller
  • Contact LUPD immediately

During the call, use the Bomb Threat Checklist Form.

Response to an Active Shooter: Run. Hide. Fight.
