Emergency Devices

Emergency Police "blue light" telephones are situated in strategic locations on both the Chicago and Evanston campuses to quickly reach University Police to report crimes, suspicious activity, medical emergencies or concerns about your personal safety.

For security purposes, emergency communication devices—similar to "blue light" emergency phones—are available on each floor in undergraduate residence halls as well as in common areas of graduate residences.
