Emergency Notification System (ENS)

The University of Regina’s Emergency Notification System (ENS) is designed to ensure effective and timely warnings are delivered to faculty, staff, students and visitors to campus in the event of a life threatening situation when people must take immediate action to stay safe on campus.

The ENS leverages existing infrastructure, such as computer monitors and television screens across the main and College Avenue campuses. The ENS is not linked to the Fire Alarm System and will not activate when the fire alarm sounds.

Throughout common areas, classrooms, dormitories and other occupant spaces, Emergency Mass Notification wall-mounted beacons with integrated flash sounder signaling and message display, are installed to display emergency messaging. The ENS will also automatically push messages to other communication channels such as computers connected to the University of Regina Novell system.


Personal Safety Tips

Safety On Campus

  • When walking on campus, walk with someone you know or call the Walk Along Program. 585-4999.

  • Walk in well-lit areas and avoid shortcuts.

  • Be Prepared! Be aware of your surroundings. Make sure you are aware of bus schedules, building closing times, etc.

Parking On Campus

Reducing the opportunity for victimization means making your vehicle less of a target for vandals.

  • Always lock vehicle doors.

  • Don't leave anything of value visible for thieves to steal.

  • When possible remove the faceplate off of stereos.

  • Invest in anti theft devices such as alarms or the "Club".

Office and Residence Security

  • Lock all windows and doors when not in attendance to these areas.

  • Do not leave valuables in the open.

  • Report any suspicious activity or break-ins immediately to campus security.

Basic Theft Protection

You can take these simple steps to make your vehicle a less likely target for thieves and vandals.

  • Install and activate an anti-theft device.

  • When leaving your vehicle, make sure the visible interior is empty, even if you're gone a short time. Tapes, C.D.'s coins, cigarettes and clothing left in plain sight will make your vehicle a target.

  • Never leave your keys in an unattended vehicle.

  • Do not hide or leave spare keys, drivers licence, or vehicle registration in the vehicle.

  • Never put your name or address on your house or car keys.

  • Always shut windows tight and lock all doors.

  • Park you vehicle facing the street, where anyone tampering with your vehicle is more likely to be seen.

  • If you leave your coat anywhere, take your keys with you.

  • Check your license plates frequently, to ensure they have not been stolen.
