Crime Alerts

American University is required by federal law to publish timely warnings about crimes that occur on or near campus and may pose a threat to students, staff and faculty. These warnings are posted on shuttle buses and bulletin boards across campus, and a complete archive of crime alerts is listed below

Students and community members are encouraged to sign up for AU Campus Connect to receive Rave Alerts, which are text or e-mail notifications of emergencies as they occur.
