Current Students

Do not walk alone at dusk or after dark. ALWAYS use campus escorts by calling SafeCampus at 206-685-WALK.

Academic Services (AS) has a copy of your academic schedule and will try their best to reach you in the event someone calls with an emergency. We recommend leaving information about your current clinical placement schedule with family and friends (including the name of your instructor/preceptor).


In Case of an Earthquake...
DROP, COVER, and HOLD. Once the shaking stops, take your valuables and leave the building. Do not plan to return for the rest of the day. Do not return to the building until you have received an all-clear from somebody "official", the Web, or e-mail. Call 206-547-INFO or check the UW home page for updates on University and building status. If the building is closed for longer than one day and an alternate location has been found for this class, it will be communicated by the instructor via e-mail to all students.


In Case of a Fire Alarm...
Take your valuables and leave the building. Plan to return to class once the alarm has stopped. Do not return to the building until you have received an all-clear from somebody "official", the internet, or e-mail. Call 206-547-INFO or check the UW home page for updates on University and building status. If the building is closed for longer than one day and an alternate location has been found for this class, it will be communicated by the instructor via e-mail to all students.


If You Are Off Campus...
You will likely be off campus at other agencies as part of clinical course requirements. You are responsible for learning agency policies in the case of natural disaster or fire.
