Always Dial 911 for Medical, Fire or Police Emergencies!


Plymouth State University is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for students, faculty, and staff. We work continuously to keep you and our campus safe. However, if an emergency does arise, it is important that you are informed of the situation and know how to respond accordingly.

Your safety is important to us. We urge you to become familiar with this handbook. We also invite you to contact us if you have any questions. Your continued safety is our goal.
