Emergency Alerts

Timely Warnings

Emergency Alerts are urgent messages about incidents on campus, including extreme emergencies, severe weather and emergency closures. They also encompass emergency notifications and timely warnings in compliance with the Clery Act. Emergency alerts are emailed to all university-issued email accounts. Students, faculty and staff may also register to receive emergency text alerts

Crime Log

The crime log contains the status and basic information on all crimes reported to the TUPD.

Crime Comparisons

TU reports annual crime statistics in adherence with Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) standards published by the FBI. UCR standards enable accurate crime comparisons between institutions and jurisdictions. Each spring, TU publishes a comparison of UCR statistics for all University System of Maryland (USM) schools. The comparisons cover crimes that occurred in the previous calendar year. 

Clery Report

In compliance with federal law, TU annually publishes Clery Reports with statistics on crimes and fires on our main campus and at Towson University in Northeastern Maryland (TUNE). The reports also include detailed information on campus security programs and policies. TU’s Clery Reports are emailed to all university-issued email accounts every September, with the report covering the previous calendar year.
