Alerts notify of an emergency – such as severe weather, criminal activity or an armed threat – and provide general instructions. Depending on the nature of the emergency, follow-up alerts will contain more detailed information. More updates will be shared on Twitter @UCF and @UCFPolice.

Hazing is an abuse of power and relationships for the purpose of demeaning others. Hazing has no place at UCF, and any acts of hazing by a student or student group will not be tolerated. Any organization or individual that is found responsible for hazing will be subject to sanctions, which may include suspension or removal from UCF. It is also important to remember that hazing is a felony and it may result in criminal charges. UCF provides resources to prevent and report hazing.
