Emergency Blue Light Phones

Students using an emergency blue light phone   

An emergency blue light phone system has been installed on campus to make the reporting of serious incidents easier and quicker. To report an emergency, crimes in progress, or a suspicious person/incident just pick up the receiver. The phone will be answered by the University Police Department. Each emergency phone is attached to a light pole or building. A blue light, easily seen at night, hangs over each box. Blue light phone maps are available at the University Police station. There are currently 28 emergency blue light phones.

Please note that the following emergency blue light phones are out-of-service due to construction:

  • Bowers Hall parking lot phone.
  • Hayes Hall annex phone has been replaced with the Dragon Hall phone.
  • Lusk Fieldhouse phone (phone relocated behind Lusk Fieldhouse, by baseball field during construction)
  • Pashley Drive phone.
