CU ADVISORY: Earlier today, the University of Colorado Boulder Police Department (CUPD), along with multiple Boulder County agencies, assisted the Boulder Police Department (BPD) in response to an incident at the Millennium Harvest House Boulder, a hotel at 1345 28th St. 

There is no threat to the CU Boulder campus. CU Boulder sent out a series of emergency alerts for this off-campus incident.

Expect a continued police presence at the hotel. More information about the incident can be found via the BPD Twitter account.

Police encourage all campus community members to be sure they are signed up for emergency alerts from the city as well as alerts from CU Boulder. Additionally, the city uses Wireless Emergency Alerts, which are automatically sent to individuals’ mobile phones in a specific area regardless of whether they have signed up to receive alerts.

CU Boulder has three alert levels and works in close coordination with BPD to assess active threats near campus. 

If there is an immediate and specific threat, police will notify community members via alerts, social and traditional media to get the information out. CUPD and BPD also urge community members to pay attention to their surroundings and call police to report suspicious behavior when they see it happening.

Go to CU Boulder Alerts for the most up-to-date information on emergency events on or near campus.
