The Department of Campus Safety & 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, and the RAVE Emergency Notification System. The Campus Safety team is committed to providing safety and security services in a professional and consistent manner. RVU strives to provide these services with integrity, professionalism, and timeliness. The Campus Safety Department is present on campus from 6 a.m. to midnight, 7 days a week. They provide proactive patrols, safety escorts, investigations, crime prevention, and many other services. Students, staff, or faculty who witness a crime, accident, emergency, suspicious person, or any other emergency should promptly call the Campus Safety & Security Department at (406) 901-2722 or contact emergency services by dialing 911. The Campus Safety & Security Department should be informed of all 911 calls so assistance can be provided to local law enforcement and/or other emergency 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, emails, 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 (406) 901-2722. If a matter needs attention from the local police or fire department, the Campus Safety Department will call either the Billings Police Department or the Billings Fire Department. You may call 911 if it is a life-threatening emergency, then notify Campus Safety so assistance can be provided to law enforcement. Victims and/or witnesses can report crimes on a confidential basis through the anonymous tip hotline (406) 901-2723.
