Emergency call boxes are placed throughout campus and provide immediate contact to campus police. By pushing the call button a voice signal is sent directly to our base dispatch center. Base operators will send campus police officers to the calling station to take appropriate action. The dispatch center will stay on the “line” with the person making the call until campus police arrives on scene.
There are three types of distress stations that you will find on campus:
- Free standing towers/poles with a flashing blue light on the top.
- External building mounted units found in key areas all across campus.
- Wall mounted units located in many residence hall laundry rooms
A map of our emergency call boxes can be found here.
If you have questions or would like more information about the emergency call boxes please contact campus police at 410-617-5010.
