Courtesy Phones

What and where are courtesy phones?

Courtesy phones will be found in common areas and hallways of all campus facilities, including residence halls.  They are for use by students, faculty, staff, and guests for the purpose of making emergency calls, calls to other extensions, or for calling toll-free numbers.  Long distance dialing is not provided, but they are there for your safety and convenience, so please feel free to use them anytime.


If an emergency occurs, please use the nearest phone of any type to contact the appropriate entity.  Dedicated emergency phones are located around campus for use only in an emergency.  Simply pick up the receiver on these phones and you will be connected with Public Safety without dialing and they will dispatch an officer to your location even if you are unable to speak.
