Star Alert is a new emergency cell phone text messaging service to notify you quickly in the event of campus emergencies, sign up now.


We're the primary unit for supporting the personal safety of Minnesota State Mankato students, employees, and campus visitors. That means 24-hour, year round vehicle and foot patrol of campus grounds and buildings. It means a 24-hour Safe Walk service for any student, employee, or guest who requests it. It means when you call 2111 (on campus) to report medical emergencies on campus, we respond with medically trained patrol staff, Gold Cross Ambulance Service or both.

University Security also investigates theft, vandalism and other crimes, and works closely with Mankato's Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies. We keep the campus informed of potential threats to personal safety through e-mail announcements, web postings and poster in campus buildings. Our Personal Safety Hotline, 507-389-2594, provides 24-hour safety tips and information on current safety issues on campus and in the community.
