Contacting Campus Safety

For general information please call 847-622-9999 or send an email to Campus Safety. All criminal activity, suspicious activity, and other emergencies on campus should be reported directly to the Department of Campus Safety by any student, staff or guest of the Judson University community. Please dial extension 9999 for all emergency or service calls on campus, 24 hours a day. You can also call 847-622-9999 from an outside line such as a cell phone. Campus Safety officers will meet you anywhere on campus to investigate and inquire about any suspicious events.

The Department of Campus Safety strongly recommends adding its phone number, 847-622-9999, to your cell phone.


Welcome new and returning students! As a reminder, all vehicles on campus must be registered at the Office of Campus Safety by the first week of fall semester classes. Please bring your driver's license, proof of insurance, and license plate number when you register. You may also register a bicycle, which is free (and required). We strongly recommend bringing sturdy bicycle locks, such as U-locks. Unlocked bicycles can and have in the past been stolen from various areas on campus.


Campus Safety also recommends if you are a student on the Elgin campus you text JUSTUDENT to 888777 from your cell phone to be entered into our free, anonymous emergency notification service, Nixle. If you are a Rockford student, text JUROCKFORD to 888777. You will receive text updates if there is a campus emergency such as a threat, a tornado warning, certain severe weather warnings, or power outages.

Non-emergency alerts about campus closings due to weather, power outages, maintenance issues, unexpected closures due to non-emergency related incidents will be sent through Judson University email and social media posts.
