Emergency Info

Security and safety information including campus emergency operations plans are available at: http://emergencyplan.depaul.edu/​​.​

Cancellations and Closures

In the event of a large-scale class cancellation or closure, a University-wide e-mail will be issued. A voicemail message will also be posted on the University’s general announcement line at 312/362-6226 or main telephone number at 312/362-8000. Additionally, the DPU Alert system may be utilized. The University will report campus closures or class cancellations to all appropriate media outlets and to the Emergency Closing Center, a communal source of information used by local television and radio stations. Isolated class cancellations will be handled more personally on a smaller scale, as required by the situation.

DPU Alerts

DePaul will send out important emergency information via phone, email and text message using the DPU Alert system.  Ensure your contact information is correct by logging into Campus Connect, select Self Service, then Personal Information, and then DPU Alert.  Please input your complete email address and enter at least one phone number.

University e-mail

Because email is a critical communication tool, it is important that students, faculty and staff keep their demographic portfolio updated in Campus Connect. Please check that site to ensure you have reported your most current off-hours contact information, and update it whenever you move or obtain a new phone number.​

Emergency Closing Center

In addition, the Emergency Closing Center has established a website at www.emergencyclosings.com where you can enter the name of your campus or its main phone number and check the status. If you see "No Report" that means DePaul is open for business as usual. Each of DePaul’s campuses is listed separately. This site also offers you the opportunity to receive an automatic email when your campus status has changed.
