Civil Disturbance

In the event of a civil disturbance or large-scale demonstration:
  • Notify Public Safety if access in or out of university buildings are blocked, or if it appears campus safety may be endangered.
  • Avoid disturbance as much as possible. Avoid provoking or obstructing demonstrators. 
  • If the disturbance is outside, stay indoors and away from doors or windows.
  • Evacuate the building or other areas as directed by law enforcement or Public Safety.
  • Public Safety may initiate a “soft lockdown” or require identification to access any affected DePaul University facilities.​
