Campus in Lockdown

The campus is in lockdown. The Seattle Police Department has informed us of a threat made against a student on campus. We are in lockdown out of an abundance of caution. No indication at this time that the threat is on campus.

If you are in a building during a lockdown:

  • Do not leave the building
  • Move to a securable area (such as an office or classroom) and lock the doors
  • Close the window coverings
  • Move away from the windows
  • Get low on the floor
  • Remain in your secure area until further direction or the all clear is given

 If you are unable to enter a building because of a lockdown:

  • Assume that classes will be suspended until the lockdown ends
  • Leave the area and seek safe shelter off campus
  • Return to campus after the all clear is given (this notification will be sent via the SPU-Alert notification system)
