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.


You can visit this specific portal page at any time to check the status of any active PioALERT. The PioALERT will be posted, with specific times and updates as they develop. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff are always our number one priority! 


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.


At this time, there are (0) active PioALERTs.

Throughout the school year, different departments around campus often request that a specific lot be closed for an event that occurs on campus. In this tab, you will find a list of all of the days in a calendar month that an entire lot will be closed. Included will be what specific times the lot will be closed and what it is closed for.


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., our officers will still 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.

Let us help you stay safe on campus by attending one of our crime prevention classes. The classes include:


Self Defense 

  • A one hour class on crime prevention and intervention strategies during a physical attack. 

Civilian Response to Active Attacker Events

  • A one and a half hour program aimed at students that discusses lessons learned from previous active attacker events, the body’s response to stress, and survival strategies for victims of active attacker events. 

Alcohol/Drug Awareness

  • A 20-30 minute program on recognizing the signs of alcohol and drug abuse, intervention strategies to mitigate abuse, and an overview of resources available to students dealing with addiction or abuse. 


The programs will be offered randomly throughout the semester or can be done by special request for your student or faculty group.  Just watch bulletin boards on campus for posters indicating upcoming classes.
