Security Phones (Blue Lights)

There are over 140 blue light security phones located throughout the campus.

These phones are connected directly to Campus Safety – no dialing is required. The Security Phone System is monitored by a Communications Officer at all hours and is activated when the large red button in the center of the phone is pushed. If a phone is activated and the Communications Officer does not receive a response from the caller, an officer is immediately dispatched to that location.  Security phones may be used to contact Campus Safety for any reason, such as to call for a safety ride or escort, reporting an unwelcome interaction, contacting Campus Safety for support, or to report an emergency.

Communications Officers can contact the appropriate emergency personnel, whether it is Campus Safety, police, fire, or medical personnel, and direct them to your location. Each security phone has a blue light above it which is clearly visible at night. Students should become familiar with the locations of the blue light security phones and their operation.

Please visit the Campus Map and click “Emergency Phones” in the legend on the left to view their locations on campus.
