Welcome to the Stephens College Emergency Information site, which provides up-to-date information about campus alerts during emergencies or unfavorable weather situations. In the event of an emergency, this space will be used to provide timely information to the Stephens community. It will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.

Parking info: Beginning on August 18 at 6 p.m., all campus parking lots will be coned off and remained closed to non-Stephens College community members through Monday August 21. Only staff, faculty and students will be allowed to park in our campus lots. All trespassing vehicles will be booted and if necessary towed at the owner's expense. It is very important if you plan on parking on campus between August 18-21 that your Stephens College parking hang tag is visible. If you your hang tag is not visible, you run the risk of having your vehicle towed from campus.
In addition to posting information on this site, we will also release emergency information via the Stephens Alert System (via Rave). Sign up to receive emergency communications via text and email. These alerts and this site are your sources for the most up-to-date information about emergency or similar situations on campus.
