This is a test.

This is the official University of Missouri emergency alert website. If you have received a text and/or email alert message recently and are seeking additional information, we are currently obtaining and confirming information from first responders; it typically takes a few minutes to confirm and post accurate information. Continue to take appropriate precautions, including being aware of your surroundings, locking your doors or going to a safe place. It is unlikely that additional texts or email messages concerning this situation will be sent.

Any updates will be posted on this site. So that phone systems do not become overloaded, please do not call MUPD as they are working hard to confirm facts and maintain the safety of the campus. We are in touch with them as they work through the process and will update this website as quickly as information is received and confirmed.

Students, please call your parents to assure them that you are safe. Please do not distribute unconfirmed information or rumors, or post or pass along rumors on social media outlets.

Safety is the university’s top priority, and we are working hard to assure that the campus remains safe while information is obtained and confirmed. Thank you.
