Safety Measures are in place, on and off campus.
University Police officers are on duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week. University Police maintains safety by patrolling campus, responding to emergencies, and notifying the college community of unusual events. Bicycle, foot, and vehicle patrols enable officers to monitor and maintain security on campus, and promote contact with the campus community.
The Blue Light Telephone System reaches the University Police quickly and is available from 36 locations around campus. University Police can identify the caller's location immediately.
All residence halls are locked 24 hours a day and equipped with an alarm system. Security cameras monitor residence hall entrances.
In addition, University Police student assistants are stationed in designated residence halls to check identification and report unusual activity.
If your car won't start, just call (716) 878-6333 or use a blue-light phone to request free motorist assistance. We'll get you going by sending the Motorist Assistance Program van to help with minor car problems.
In the case of an emergency, the campus is ready to respond. For more detailed information, please visit the Emergency Response Plan page.
Buff State alert is a voluntary system available for Buffalo State students, faculty, and staff members that delivers text messages, automated phone messages, e-mails, and faxes when there is an immediate or severe threat to the physical health and safety of campus constituents.
The system is also designed to inform the campus community of campus closings due to weather or major utility failures.
