Seattle Pacific University is committed to helping you provide for your own safety and security. Each year, we are required to distribute a copy of our Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to all enrolled students and current employees. Typically, SPU makes this report available by October 1 of each year, but for 2020 the U.S. Department of Education has stated that due to COVID-19, universities have until December 31, 2020, to share their reports.
SPU fulfills this requirement by posting its Annual Security and Fire Safety Report on this website and sending an email to students and employees, notifying them of the availability of the report. The most current Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is posted below.
If you are a student or employee (or prospective student or employee) and would like to receive a print version of this report, stop by the Office of Safety and Security (601 West Emerson Street, Seattle, WA 98119), or call 206-281-2922 to request that a copy be mailed to you.
