Emergency Management

Through several initiatives, the Campus is prepared for a wide array of emergency situations, ensuring prompt notification and protection of the Campus community whether the event is commonplace or extraordinary. In the event of emergency, the LIU Post Emergency Notification System is enabled to instantly and simultaneously contact LIU Post students, faculty and staff via Long Island University e-mail, Web site notifications and text messaging to those who register their cell phones with the University.

An efficient Snow and Emergency School Closings system is in place to ensure our students are informed of closings immediately via the LIU Post homepage, our emergency closings hotline (516-299-EMER), as well as local radio and television stations.
