Emergency Guidelines for Students with Disabilities

Butler University cannot make any guarantee or representation that its personnel will be able to assist an individual with a disability in the event an emergency evacuation occurs.

Students who are concerned about their ability to safely evacuate in an emergency should utilize every precautionary measure to help ensure their own safety. Students should convey their evacuation concerns to SDS and all other relevant university employees prior to an actual emergency. Students must also be prepared to review their evacuation concerns with emergency personnel during an actual emergency situation should the need arise. Students should familiarize themselves with campus buildings and exits, and should seat themselves near classroom doorways and exits if they feel this is necessary.
