Emergency Phones

Interactive Map

There are emergency phones located strategically throughout campus. These "blue light phones" connect directly to the Department of Public Safety communications center. This call is initiated by the touch of a button. When the phones are activated, a strobe light on top will flash. This marks the location for the responding officer and serves as a deterrent to further criminal activity. Phones in the communications center will display the location of the call to ensure officers respond to the location quickly.

When you activate the emergency phone please provide the following information:

  • Your location
  • The nature of the emergency

Be prepared to answer the communications officer's questions and respond to any instructions that may be given.
