Salisbury University students on campus

Missing Person Reporting & Notification

When any staff member of an on-campus housing facility receives a report that a resident is missing, they will immediately notify the appropriate police department about the missing student. If the missing student is under the age of 18 and is not an emancipated individual, federal law requires Salisbury University to notify the student’s parent or legal guardian (within 24 hours) if it is determined that the student has been missing for more than 24 hours. 

In addition to registering a general emergency contact, students residing in an on-campus student housing facility have the option to identify confidentially a different individual to be contacted in the specific event the student is determined to be missing for more than 24 hours.  If a student has identified such an individual, Salisbury University will notify that individual no later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.  Students who reside in residence halls can register a confidential contact through their Salisbury University GullNet account (click on the “Emergency Notification” link and then the “SU Missing Person Contact” tab).  Students who reside in University Park can register the name and phone number of a contact person by email to A student’s confidential contact information will be accessible only by authorized campus officials and law enforcement as appropriate. 

To file a missing person report, contact University Police at 410-543-6222.  If the missing person is a resident of University Park, contact Salisbury Police at 410-548-3165.
