Emergency Management


Provide UHCL with a comprehensive and integrated emergency management system that coordinates university and community resources to protect lives, property and the environment through mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery from all natural and man-made hazards that may impact our campus.

Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)

Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) ensure operations may be performed efficiently with minimal disruptions. The intent of the plan is to establish operational concepts and identify tasks and responsibilities required to carry out emergency management and recovery. For assistance with continuity planning contact the Office of Emergency Management at 281-283-2210 or blacka@uhcl.edu.

Evacuation Plan 

The purpose of the evacuation plan is to manage, direct and control an orderly campus evacuation in the event of a campus emergency. If an emergency situation arises and the University must evacuate any of its facilities, our goal will be to keep unaffected campuses open and operating, on a normal class and business schedule. The University is prepared to evacuate any campus, and will do so if it becomes aware of potential danger.

The evacuation of any campus building requires the teamwork of many departments, professional and student staff and residents.

The evacuation of any housing building will be coordinated with the Department of Student Housing and Residential Life, UHCL Police Department (UHCL PD) and Office of Emergency Management (OEM). All other evacuations shall be conducted in coordination with UHCL PD and OEM.
