In an emergency situation, Roosevelt University may be placed under lockdown to ensure everyone’s safety. During a lockdown, all doors and windows are locked and all students, faculty and staff remain in their rooms or offices. No one is permitted to leave and no one, including parents, is allowed in the facility. Should a lockdown occur, students, faculty and staff are asked to remain calm as University and emergency responders manage the situation. If it appears that the lockdown will last for an extended period of time, assigned faculty and staff will attempt to assist those who need to notify their parents, spouses or significant others by telephone, as no one will be allowed to leave until recommended by the appropriate authorities.
If you hear the outdoor warning siren, immediately go to an inner hallway, washroom, or room without windows. Do not leave the building. If you are outside, seek shelter inside. If you cannot get inside, crouch for protection beside a strong structure, or lie flat in a ditch or low-lying grass and cover your head and neck with your arms or a piece of clothing.
