KUDOS-Public Safety

We sat down with Public Safety and Police Services to get an inside look at the dedicated individuals who enrich the living, learning and working experiences of the Kutztown University community by providing a safe and secure environment in which students can learn and maintaining order throughout various facets of the KU campus. Read the story and watch the video here.


Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Cold front from yesterday stalls to our south. Impulses of midlevel energy move along the boundary so we may see some on-and-off showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy to overcast conditions likely. High temperature in the upper-70s. Winds northeast at 6 mph. Rainfall between 0.25-0.5 inches with higher amounts where storms occur.


Parking and Transportation Services has joined the KU Card Office. The combined offices will now be known as KU Card and Transportation Services. As of Aug. 12, all student, faculty, staff and visitor parking permits will be distributed from their new location in 107 Academic Forum. Inquiries regarding parking decals, tickets and the campus shuttle program should be directed to 610-683-4825. Student ticket payments and appeals will still be handled via their MyKU account.
