Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
EMERGENCIES: If you believe there is an imminent safety threat or emergency please call the police immediately. For on-campus situations please call the Auraria Police Department directly by dialing 911 from any campus phone or at 303.556.5000 from a cell phone. For off-campus emergencies please call 911. Additionally, please file a CARE report after the authorities have been notified of the emergent situation and have responded. CARE reports are monitored regularly during the University’s regular business hours.
If you have concerns about an MSU Denver student who may be struggling or whose behavior is concerning, risky, or potentially harmful to himself, herself, others, or the community, please file a CARE Referral. Even if you aren’t sure that a student’s situation merits a CARE report we encourage you to err on the side of caution and let us know what you’ve observed. By doing so, the professionals on the CARE Team can assess the situation, piece together any possible other information about the student’s situation, and respond appropriately.
