Emergency Services

For any fire, police or medical emergency call University Police immediately at:


(Only the last four digits are necessary on campus phones)

Or go to one of the yellow emergency telephones on cam­pus. Be prepared to:

  • Give your location
  • Describe the nature of the emergency
  • Respond to questions and instructions from the University Police dispatcher

The appropriate city or other emergency teams will be sent to your location.

Dialing 911 from campus:

Ambulance (medical emergency) 911
Mobile Intensive Care (Trauma) 911
Fire 911

Note: You may dial the 911 Emergency Center from campus three ways:

  1. 9 + 911
  2. 911 + #
  3. 911

If you dial 911 there will be approximately a 10-second delay before the 911 Emergency Center will ring; however, the call will go through. We recommend dialing either 9+911 or 911+#.
