Aurora University is equipped with an emergency notification system that allows the university to broadcast sirens and messages from the roofs of Eckhart Hall and Centennial Hall in the case of severe weather or other campus emergencies.
In the event that there is an emergency on campus, the system will notify the campus with the following alerts:
siren: The weather siren will be used in the case of a tornado or other
severe weather concern. The siren will be followed by a message to immediately
seek shelter in the designated area for your building. Every room on campus
contains a map identifying the severe weather zone for the building. Stay in
your designated area until you hear the all-clear message.

siren: The warbling siren indicates that there is a non-weather related
emergency on campus and will direct you to shelter in place. You should stay
where you are, or go to the nearest room if you are in a hallway, lock the
door, stay out of sight and wait for the all-clear message.

- Voice announcements: Voice announcements will give you further information and instructions
to ensure your safety. Follow the instructions of the voice message until you
hear the all-clear message.
