Emergency Preparedness at WKU: At WKU, the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is extremely important to us.

Emergency and Weather-Related Communications

WKU employs a variety of methods to communicate with our internal and external community during an emergency, weather-related event or any time events may cause disruptions in the normal campus routine. These include:

Note: All official communication will originate directly from WKU News or the WKU Police Department.  We encourage students to be cautious with where they obtain their information during emergency situations, especially via social media.
