In Case of Emergency

As an on-going effort, SMU has developed an Emergency Plan. Part of the plan is to inform our community of how to respond to a disaster. Please refer to the Emergency & Disaster Guide for more information.

In addition, the Department of Residence Life & Student Housing will from time to time post important information here regarding critical residence hall situations as the need warrants.
