The OSU-Tulsa University Police department, in partnership with OSU in Tulsa Marketing and Communications Services and Human Resources, maintains and communicates information about safety on campus.

OSU-Tulsa's official methods of communication include email, the OSU-Tulsa website, OSU Alerts and social media. Students, faculty and staff are always encouraged to check their OSU email first and the website second for information regarding weather and other emergency campus closures. Information will subsequently be posted to Facebook and Twitter as it becomes available.

If you witness or are victim to a crime, or if you spot suspicious activity on campus, immediately contact the OSU-Tulsa Police at the number below. If you wish to remain anonymous you may also use the Silent Witness system.
