Fire Safety

Augustana University publishes an annual report outlining security and fire safety information, along with student housing fire and crime statistics for campus. This document provides information on AU fire safety policies, which can serve as a guide during emergencies. A printed copy of this report is also available at the Department of Campus Safety, located in the Morrison Commons.
