Campus Security

University of the Southwest provides full-time security service seven days a week. Dial 575-942-5902 to reach the security office. Cory Hitchcock, Director of Housing, can be reached Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 575-492-2158. Lost and found items are located in the Scarborough Memorial Library.

USW uses Blackboard Connect to communicate campus emergencies and other events in the following ways:
  • Voice messages to home phones, work phones, cell phones, and even e-mail addresses;
  • Text messages to cell phones, PDAs, networked digital signage, and other text-based devices;
  • Text messages to e-mail accounts; and
  • Messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired.
Blackboard Connect enables campus leaders to schedule, send, and track personalized voice messages for up to six phone numbers and two e-mail addresses per student and staff member. Blackboard Connect automatically integrates with our student and staff records databases to load student and staff contact information, thus eliminating the need for a sign-up period.
