Safety precautions ahead of the Inauguration Day Period

As the country prepares for the upcoming presidential inauguration and following the recent events that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, it’s important for the WVU community to be informed and aware of the resources that are available on campus.

University Police is working closely with the Morgantown Police Department and other local agencies to remain apprised of any developments that may affect the campus community.

Students, faculty and staff should continue to follow Mountaineer E-News, U-News and check e-mail accounts for information or announcements. Follow WVU Safety’s social media accounts for reliable and rapid information or find emergency information on the WVU Safety website.

Employees and students are reminded to verify that contact information is updated for WVU Alerts and to download the Live Safe app that enables direct and discreet two-way communication with University Police using text, picture, video and audio.

The Carruth Center is available to offer crisis intervention and counseling support services. WVU’s Crisis Text Line is free, confidential and available 24/7. Text WVU to 721741.

As always, please report concerns or suspicious activity. For emergencies, call 911 or University Police at 304-293-3136.
