As DePaul begins the winter quarter, Public Safety would like to remind the community about several important resources that help keep the campus safe.
Public Safety encourages you to contemplate options for how to respond when you feel unsafe both on and off campus.
• We recommend you first call 911 in an active shooter situation. Then call Public Safety at the Loop Campus (312-362-8400) or the Lincoln Park Campus (773-325-7777).
• Watch this short video demonstrating how door barricades are used in classrooms when and if shots are fired on campus. We especially encourage all faculty members to practice using door barricades in the classrooms where they teach. Knowing how to use these devices before an emergency is critical. Please read additional recommended actions to take in the case of an active shooter situation.
