Campus Status and Emergency Information
Information will be posted on this website during a campus emergency.
Ohio’s Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 17-23. Ohio State's Emergency Management and Franklin County Emergency Management & Homeland Security will participate in a statewide tornado drill on Wednesday, March 20, at 9:50 a.m. All are encouraged to participate and/or consider what to do during a tornado warning.
Preparing for Emergency Situations
Below is a brief overview of safety resources to help prepare you for emergency situations:
- Active Aggressor Video
- Safety Messaging Toolkit
- About Alert Notices
- Buckeye Alert Desktop Pop-ups
As an additional resource to provide the campus community with safety information, Buckeye Alerts will be shared via a pop-up message on select public desktop computers on campus. These computers include machines located in pool classrooms (those managed through University Registrar Classroom Scheduling), computer labs and libraries. The desktop pop-up message will contain the same information that is shared in Buckeye Alerts sent via text message. Users may close the message after it appears on their screen.
