Our Public Safety Officers are expertly-trained professionals who are highly visible while patrolling campus, 24/7, 365 days a year. In addition, our dispatch center is also staffed 24/7 and ready to assist. The Department of Public Safety works in close partnership with local first responders to ensure the security of our students, faculty, staff and surrounding neighborhoods. We are committed to excellence and building trust through leadership in all we do!



Throughout the school year, departments around campus often request that a specific lot be closed for an event on campus. In this tab, you will find the days that an entire lot will be closed. Included will be specific times the lot will be closed and the reason for closing.


Additionally, when a lot closure request comes into Public Safety, our officers will usually reserve the lot at the start of the morning to ensure the spots needed will be available at the time of the request. For example, even if a lot is requested to be closed at 8 P.M on a certain day., Public Safety will close the lot for the entire day beginning at 4 A.M of the day requested. If you have any questions on parking alternatives, please contact Public Safety directly at (262) 524-7300 and we will assist you.

PioALERT is the emergency notification system that enables Carroll University to inform members of the campus community quickly in the event of an emergency. PioALERT uses various communication methods, including text messaging, email and voicemail. Messages will be brief, stating the nature of the situation and suggested action. PioALERT will never be used for promotions and/or marketing communications. Carroll University does not sell or share your information with third parties. Information is kept in strict confidence for university use only.

A major part of this system is the use of text messages to alert for immediate life-threatening situations that are actively occurring.

 It is highly recommended that students, faculty and staff sign up to receive PioALERT text messages. To opt in, visit, log in and update your information under Student or Employee > My Info > Emergency Notifications via Text Alerts.




In any emergency situation, please dial 911.
