Department of Public Safety
The Public Safety Department at Western Washington University encompasses several functional units, which, though distinct, work together toward a common goal; providing a safe, secure, and accessible educational environment.
For police assistance in emergency situations or crimes in progress, call: (360) 650-3911 or 911.
Notifications in Case of an Emergency
In the event of a crisis at Western, the university will use every communication tool at its disposal to share information with the campus community as quickly as possible.
- The Western Home Page
- The Western Safety and Emergency Information webpage
- The RAVE system will send e-mail and text messages, along with other methods as appropriate
It is important that the university know your main phone numbers, including cell phones; it's also helpful for the university to have contact information for your family members in the event of emergency.
