Safety and Security officer

We are making plans to resume full campus operations in light of COVID-19 and current public health guidelines. More information will be posted soon. For the latest information and guideline, visit the Resuming Campus Operations website.

Faculty and Staff ORCA cards available

2020-21 ORCA cards are available for SPU faculty and staff who use alternative transportation as part of their commute at least three days a week.  If you do not have a current 2019-20 ORCA card, you can pick up your new card at the Office of Safety and Security between 9 a.m. and 4 pm. after submitting the required forms. Due to safety protocols, we ask that you call ahead to let us know when you plan to arrive. When you do arrive, please wear a face covering  and observe social distancing guidelines.
