Campus Emergency Phones

What is a Campus Emergency Phone (EP)?

Campus Emergency Phones are stationary phones that are located strategically around the University of Toronto St. George campus. They can be used to call Campus Safety Communications if you are in distress or are experiencing any other type of emergency.

Campus Emergency Phones are easily identifiable by their bright red or yellow paint scheme with the text "Emergency" in bold contrasting colours printed on the front or sides. Some devices are also equipped with a flashing blue strobe light to help responding Special Constables locate you.

How do I use a Campus Emergency Phone?

To use a Campus Emergency Phone, press the call button on the front of the device - you do not need to keep the button pressed down. You will hear a dial tone and be connected with a Campus Safety Communications Operator for assistance.


Be prepared to give them the following information to give to responding Special Constables:

  1. Your name

  2. Your location

  3. The nature of your emergency
