Safety and Security at Rocky Vista University (RVU)

| Campus Resources | Campus Safety and Security


Campus Safety and Security has several ways to ensure that the campus community remains a safe and secure learning environment, including CCTV surveillance cameras, an access-controlled facility, advanced fire control system, Alertus and RAVE Emergency Notification systems in Colorado and RAVE system in Utah, as well as officer patrols and escorts. The Security team is committed to providing safety and security services in a professional and consistent manner. RVU strives to provide these services with integrity, timely communication, and problem-solving. The Security Department serves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They provide patrols, escorts, investigations, crime prevention, and many other services. Students, staff, or faculty who witness a crime, accident, emergency, or suspicious person should promptly call the Security Department at (720) 875-2892 in Colorado or 911. The Security Department should be informed of any 911 calls so assistance can be provided to the local law enforcement or fire personnel. 

Students, staff, and faculty will receive emergency notifications, including campus closures and weather delays via SMS text messages and email notifications. In the event a Timely Warning Notice is issued, the campus community will be notified as soon as possible through our Emergency Notification Systems in the form of SMS text messages, email, Alertus audible announcement beacons, and/or bull horn/public address system. Students, staff, and faculty will receive a text message notification of RVU campus closures or emergencies.

If you see a crime, accident, emergency or suspicious person, promptly call (720) 875-2892. If a matter needs attention from the local police or fire department, a security officer will call either the Parker Police Department or the South Metro Fire and Rescue Department. You may call 911 if it is a life-threatening emergency, then notify the Security Department so assistance can be provided to law enforcement. Victims and/or witnesses can report crimes on a confidential basis through the help/tip hotline (303) 708-8185.

Students should plan to utilize student parking areas as usual. If all student parking areas are full, students may park in the faculty/staff/visitor lot on the North side of the building. If all on-campus lots are full and should overflow parking be necessary at any point in the future – you are permitted to park along the curb of Grasslands Dr. from the intersection with Prairie Trail Drive all the way west to Upland Dr.

Please be mindful and do not park within 15’ of intersections, driveways, or fire hydrants as the curbs on Grasslands have not yet been marked.

If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to parking please contact More information regarding our overflow parking plans will be made available by email, on our web-site, and through other communication channels in the future. Thank you for your attention to this important message and we look forward to sharing parking expansion plans in 2024.
