While individuals are welcome to engage with various apps and programs on their personal devices, Wildfire, which markets itself as a campus-safety tool, has no affiliation with the University or the Auraria Campus.

MSU Denver, the Auraria Higher Education Center and the Auraria Campus Police Department offer several campuswide emergency and safety communication tools, and the ACPD will communicate directly with members of the AHEC community through Timely Warning emails and emergency notifications.

To report safety concerns on the Auraria Campus, please contact the ACPD at 303-556-5000 or via Text-a-Tip at 720-593-TIPS (8477). The ACPD also can be reached directly through any of the 65 Exterior Emergency Poles on campus or from any of the 218 interior Emergency Phones located throughout garages and classroom buildings.

Likewise, the ACPD is available in the Administration Building (1201 5th St., Suite 110) to discuss and respond to general campus-safety matters or questions.

If you have questions about applications and programs that are University-supported, please visit the Information Technology Services webpage or call 303-352-7548.
