Update Your Emergency Contact Information
Each year the University request that all new students provide, on a voluntary basis, emergency contact information. This information will also be used in the following manner in the event that a student is reported missing while at the institution.
If a West Virginia University student living in University-operated housing is suspected to be missing from campus, immediately report it to a residence hall staff member (i.e. residence hall coordinator, resident faculty leader, resident assistant) or the University Police Department (UPD).
If the student resides off-campus, contact the University Police for assistance at 304-293-COPS
All reports of missing students made to the residence hall staff and/or the UPD will be investigated. If the investigation determines that the student has been missing over 24 hours then, within the next 24 hours, the University will:
- Notify the individual identified as your emergency contact person;
- If under 18 years of age, the University will notify a parent or guardian; and;
- If you are over 18 years of age and have not provided an emergency contact, the University will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency.
