Student Life at ECSU

Campus Safety

A safe place to learn.

You deserve to feel safe and supported while on campus. That’s why we create and share resources, alert systems, and incident reporting tools for campus. Your well-being will always be our top priority.  

Campus Safety Resources

Effective communication can save lives when emergencies happen. In the event of an emergency, ECSU strives to provide quick and accurate communication to students, faculty, staff, and guests through the use of ECSU Alert and emergency procedures. We can notify you via text message, email notification, and alerts on the front webpage.

Sign up to receive text messages notification on your cellphone by creating an ECSU Blackboard Connect Portal account at or by entering your cell phone number into your Self Service Banner as your primary contact number.

You can also contact the Office of Emergency Management at (252) 335-4607 for additional assistance.

ECSU offers counseling support for any student who may need to talk with a professional confidential counselor on campus. The Office of Counseling and Testing can aid you in assisting to address any emotional concerns you may have received as a result of a traumatic incident. You also have the option to contact off-campus support resources to address any concerns you may have.
