A lockdown is a measure that aims to protect building occupants from a direct, active threat of violence on campus. A lockdown may be required if there is an armed individual, active shooter, or other individual who is directly and seriously threatening the lives or the physical integrity of people on campus.

When a lockdown advisory goes out, occupants in the buildings involved must stay inside and barricade the rooms where they are if possible. The lockdown aims to keep people who could be exposed to the danger safe until the situation is brought under control and the danger has passed.
