Escorts

Emergency Phones

Picture of a Emergency Phone on CampusEmergency phones are located all across campus. Many of them can be identified by the soft glow blue light that is housed above the phone. When the phone is activated, these lights will strobe. There are some emergency phones located inside some of the residential facilities that are wall mounted and do not have blue lights. Also every elevator on campus has an emergency phone inside the cab of the elevator. These phones may be used for any type of emergency as well as to request the service of the University Police Department, such as to request an escort or a vehicle boost.
