Stay Safe and Secure at USC Upstate

Spartan Safe at USC Upstate

Ensuring the safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff on campus is a primary commitment of the University. In conjunction with the Division of Student Affairs, the University Police Department has instituted an array of safety measures and programs to deal with emergency issues.

SpartAlert Emergency Notification System

While we hope that a crisis or emergency will never occur, we are committed to keeping you and your family members informed of any circumstances that may pose a threat of imminent danger through our mass notification system SpartAlert.

This system will automatically notify you or a loved one via text and email of any weather-related emergency, man-made disaster, active shooter, or major power disruption that could affect the university’s normal business operations. To ensure you receive these critical alerts, please take a moment to register or verify that we have your most recent contact information in our system.

By registering and keeping your contact information up to date, you can stay safe by receiving SpartAlert messages when you most need them.
