Help Phones

Over 115 emergency "HELP" phones are located at strategic points on campus. See our Help Phone Location Map [PDF].

These phones are easily identified by their yellow boxes topped with blue lights. When the red emergency button is pushed, the caller is in immediate contact with the UMPD. In addition to providing voice contact with a police dispatcher, HELP phone use also enables a dispatcher to pinpoint the caller's location.
