Campus Services

The Campus Safety staff is prepared to assist when you need them most.

Emergency Medical Response

610-409-3333 (x3333) All Campus Safety Officers are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and first aid.  Campus Safety also has a cooperative working relationship with UCEMS during the academic year.  UCEMS members respond to medical issues involving faculty, staff, students and visitors during non-business hours.

When UCEMS is not on-call, ambulance personnel answer medical emergency calls.  If you need immediate medical attention, contact Campus Safety by dialing 610-409-3333 (x3333 on campus).  Any time you feel that a situation is an emergency and requires an urgent response by an ambulance, call 911 directly and then contact Campus Safety. 

For non-life threatening concerns:

During business hours (M – F, 9 a.m. – 5 p;m.): Students should contact the Wellness Center at 610-409-3100 or seek care at a local Urgent Care facility (see below).  Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact their primary care provider. 

During non-business hours: Students can either go to a local Urgent Care facility or text our Medical Director, Dr. Doghramji at 484-300-2541.

Fire Alarm Response

Campus Safety Officers are trained to respond to all fire alarms on campus.  If you are in a building and the alarm sounds, please move quickly and orderly to the nearest exit.  An officer will notify you when it is safe to return to the building.  Drills are held each semester to familiarize the campus community with evacuation procedures and meeting places.  If you are in a building and see evidence of a fire, find the nearest pull station, sound the alarm and then immediately leave the building.  Evidence of a fire includes: sight of smoke or fire, odorous evidence of burning, or concentrations of flammable gases. 

Personal Safety Escorts

Personal safety escorts from and to any on-campus location are provided to members of the campus community at any time during the day.  Escorts may be via foot, golf cart, or safety vehicle.  When time permits, Campus Safety Officers will provide golf cart or vehicle escort to community members requiring physical assistance. 

Motor Vehicle Assistance

Upon request, Campus Safety Officers will assist on-campus motorists with disabled vehicles by providing battery jump-starts.  Officers are also available to assist those who have locked their keys in their vehicle.  A signed waiver form is required before any vehicle assist occurs.  Officers are not able fix or change tires or perform any other type of mechanical service to a vehicle.

Parking Permits

All vehicles on campus must be registered with Campus Safety.  Student and staff vehicles must be registered within 48 hours of arriving on campus.  Visitors may obtain short term parking permits for parking privileges on campus. For a more complete listing of college parking regulations see: Parking Regulations 

Student Room Lockouts

Students who lock themselves out of their rooms should request assistance from their RA.  During evening hours, students may also contact the RA on duty within the building or area.  Should no members of the Residence Life staff be available to help, Campus Safety may be called for assistance.  Campus Safety will not respond to a lockout call in a particular location during the period of time each evening that residence hall staff are on duty in that building (7 p.m.-midnight Sundays through Thursdays and 7 p.m.- 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays).

Students requiring Campus Safety assistance must bring their student ID to the Campus Safety Office in Wismer Hall for identification verification.  This service is provided free for the first time.  Additional lockouts may be assessed a nominal fee.

Emergency Telephones

Emergency telephones are strategically located throughout campus to provide assistance to anyone in distress and are identified with a Campus Safety sticker.  All phones will connect directly to Campus Safety by pushing the red button.  An officer will be dispatched to provide assistance.  Additionally, courtesy telephones are located in the lobby of many academic buildings. These provide telephone access for both emergency and non-emergency contact to any on- campus extension.

Building Access, Keys & ID Cards

Campus Safety Officers maintain a schedule of locking and unlocking all campus buildings based on use, class schedules, special events and safety concerns. Access to institutional facilities is on an as-needed basis and regulated by strict key control or access card procedures.  Access to residence halls and houses is gained through exterior doors which are self-locking. Signs are posted at the entrance to residence halls to remind students to lock the doors. Campus Safety, together with the Office of Student Life hold residence area meetings with students to describe safety procedures and develop safety awareness.
