University of Mary: Safe and Secure

The University of Mary is committed to maintaining a safe and secure campus environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Here are some of the ways you can help ensure the safety of our campus:

  1. Dial 8000 or 911

    To contact Campus Safety and Security you can call 701-355-8000 from any hardline or cell phone. In addition, you can call 8000 from any campus phone. For any emergency where a police officer, the fire department, or an ambulance is needed, call 911.

  2. Review the Emergency Response Guide

    We've developed an emergency response guide that outlines the appropriate contacts and plans of action for potential emergency situations that may arise on campus.

  3. Sign up for Mary's Emergency Notification System

    The University of Mary utilizes a notification network that is capable of sending instant emergency notifications to all registered mobile phones, smart phones, landline phones, and e-mail addresses. You may sign up or edit your current notification preferences using the link below.

Monthly Test of our Emergency Notifications

In collaboration with the Burleigh County Emergency Management (BCEM), the University of Mary conducts a monthly test of its Emergency Notification System (ENS) on the last Friday of each month at 9:30 AM. During the monthly test, all individuals who have signed up to receive emergency notifications will receive the following message: This is a test of the Emergency Notification System. Please go to 8000.umary.edu for further information.

At the request of the BCEM, the university's test is scheduled to coincide with their emergency sirens. The purpose of the university's test three fold:

  1. The monthly test message provides verification to students, faculty and staff they are registered on the emergency notification system. Users who receive the test can be confident they will receive messages in the event of an emergency.
  2. It provides an important opportunity for university personnel responsible to send emergency messages in the event of an actual emergency.
  3. It provides the university and BCEM to verify that our systems are operating correctly and communicating with one another.

If you have friends who did not receive a test message, please remind them to sign up for the university's Emergency Notification System.

The University of Mary publishes annual security reports for the main campus and its satellite operations.
