Communication Resources

In all emergencies when using an on-campus phone dial 2111 (Safety and Security) and/or 9-911. Emergency phones are located in many campus parking lots and at building entrances of residence halls and Dahl Centennial Union for use as needed.

When calling:

  • Give your name.
  • Give your phone number.
  • Give building name and room number or other specific location.
  • Describe the condition clearly and accurately.
  • Do not hang up until instructed to do so; other information may be needed.
