Emergency Information

Gonzaga University is currently operating normally.
 

In the event of an emergency on or near the Gonzaga University campus, this page is updated to contain situational awareness updates and important information for our community. The Campus Emergency Information Hotline (509-313-5666) is also updated to reflect the status of the campus when necessary.

Ongoing Concern About a Student

If you have concerns about a Gonzaga student, but this is not an emergency:

Sometimes small changes in behaviors or attitude are the first indicator that a student may need more assistance. Other times, behaviors are being noticed by many members of our community and creating a significant amount of concern.  A student of concern is any student who is displaying behaviors that may get in the way of a student's ability to be successful in the University environment.

The REFER form* is one way you can share that you are concerned about a student. Someone from the Center for Cura Personalis, or their designee, will reach out to provide the student with support and resources. If you would prefer to discuss your concern with someone directly, you can call the Center for Cura Personalis at 509-313-2227

*Form submissions are not monitored outside of normal business hours, including weekends and University holidays. If you have immediate concerns about the health or safety of a student, or for the Gonzaga community, please call Campus Security and Public Safety at 509-313-2222, or 911.
